Miracle on Taylor Street Brightens Holidays for UI Health Neighbors
Friday, December 14, 2018
UI Health collected nearly 500 holiday gifts as part of its Miracle on Taylor Street gift drive Dec. 6.
The annual holiday event partners with local organizations to provide toys, reading materials, and donations for children and families in nearby communities.
Staff provided nearly 450 gifts for the children and families supported by the partnering organizations:
- A Safe Haven Foundation
- Chinese American Service League
- Missionaries of Charity
- Mujeres Latinas en Acción
- Neopolitan Lighthouse
- New Hope Recovery Center
- Theresa's Interim Housing (Deborah's Place)
In addition, our Perioperative Services team provided a generous $300 gift card to our hospital's Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (Peds ICU). Pediatrics also received over 45 extra gifts to distribute to children in the hospital during the holidays.
Members of UI Health leadership were on-hand during the event to greet representatives from the organizations.
Thank you to all UI Health staff for their generous contributions to bring cheer to the less fortunate during the holiday season, and to all the partner organizations for their help in making this year’s gift drive a success.
