Thank you, gracias, salamat, merci, danke schön, grazie, obrigado, medusa!

Yesterday’s 19th annual Thanksgiving food drive and patient appreciation day was a huge success!  Thank you to all those who were able to participate.  Counting how much food was donated is hard to do.  Some patients brought cases of canned food, others huge 25 lb. sacks of flour and sugar.  Others brought multiple bags of groceries and still others gave cash donations that totaled $300!  Our reception area is covered with food.  We even had to remove several chairs.  The staff front desk area is covered and Mary’s office…well, she can barely get to her desk chair.  The East Ft. Bend food pantry will pick it up today.  But, I’m sure we’ll have to get them back out on Monday and Tuesday again because donations will continue to arrive today thru Tuesday for those who couldn’t attend yesterday’s event.  As always I’m humbled by the love and generosity of our patients and community.

Děkuji and blessings,

P.S.  Special thanks to the vendors and local businesses for their participation and prizes for the raffle!
