Service Committee

This year we had wonderful opportunities to work on each campus and out in the community. At each hospital campus, we were instrumental in running the blood drives. Beautification of the Community Campus included decorating the campus for the holidays and planting flowers in the spring. We also were able to assist Spiritual Care at the Downtown Campus at their Annual Memorial Service and were part of Snowflake Central again in the Golisano Children’s Hospital. At each campus, “themed dinners” complete with entertainment were provided for several hospital units for patients and their families.
