STAFF REPORT | Nashville Voice
Nashville General Hospital (NGH) and Nashville General Hospital Foundation (NGHF) hosted the organization’s fifth annual Secret Santa Gift Exchange on Thursday, Dec. 20, 2018.
NGH and the NGHF doctors, staff, and administration rewarded forty-one children who were chosen by teachers, faith leaders, or identified by family need with a pizza party, a visit with Santa and Christmas gifts to take home.
NGH Employees have provided gifts to more than 200 families through the Secret Santa Gift Exchange since their first party in 2013. Annually, the staff looks forward to bringing merriment and joy to deserving children in the community during this festive time of year.
NGH Foundation Board member and Pastor of Corinthian Baptist Church, Enoch Fuzz, said the foundation started the gift exchange because collectively they knew r many families in the neighborhood could benefit from assistance during the holidays.
Hospital staff knew it would be a great opportunity for them to make a positive impact in the community beyond their quality healthcare they deliver day-to-day.
“It offers a wonderful opportunity to recognize each child’s dedication to their own education and enables the employees of Nashville General a wonderful way to say how much we care about these children’s future success,” noted NGH Foundation Executive Director, Vernon Rose.
