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.  We participated in Strikes for Strokes held May 2015 to benefit the Physical Medical Rehabilitation Department at Upstate.  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 in November and were part of Snowflake Central again in the Golisano Children’s Hospital.
