VNA Needy Family Fund Comes Through Again

Released: 12/27/2021 6:00:00 AM

By Clarisse Chambless, insurance specialist


This year, thanks to the generosity of VNA employees, the Needy Family Fund was able to purchase gifts for a total of 84 people. These included food, gift cards for perishable groceries, clothing, coats and boots, as well as toys and games. We were able to assist 10 Erie County families and 15 patients from Team 7. The Fund also extended its reach in 2021 to assist a GLOW family, purchasing gifts for the mom and dad and their four boys.

All the gifts were wrapped and, for many of the families, these were the only gifts they received this year.

Kim Krol, accounts receivable manager, oversees this employee-created fund. Various events are held year 'round to raise money for the fund. Thank you to everyone who shopped, wrapped, contributed money and otherwise pitched in to help. Your generosity with your time and money are truly appreciated by those we have touched.
