HMH Gifts for Foster Children

Fifteen children were sponsored by Howard Memorial Hospital employees “and this is our third year to do this program,” HMH Chief Nursing Officer Alesha Collins began. “It started with a call from Skip Bell to Ginger Blue in 2014 because of an ad he saw in the paper and it has grown into what it is today. Ginger brings me the wish list of the children and I disperse the lists out to the departments requesting to participate. I am so over joyed to work at a hospital where the employees are so caring and compassionate and really and truly enjoy giving back and will do whatever it takes to make sure the Foster Child Community children have a great Christmas.”

The Departments that participated were:


Medical Records


Patient Care Unit

Emergency Department



Physical Therapy
