The PrimaCare Community Family Health Team (PCCFHT) wanted to get involved this year in helping to make Christmas for local families in need, a happy one. In September, our team chose to support the local Christmas Hamper efforts in Paris. Volunteers from PCCFHT assisted in helping with the sorting of thousands of donations, which took place at the Paris Fairgrounds in December.
A donation of a beautiful, outdoor Christmas planter and an original acrylic painting (hand painted by staff member Ina Bahdanovich) were raffled off at PCCFHT’s Christmas Luncheon to raise funds for the Christmas Hamper. When PCCFHT held their Christmas Luncheon, the cost of admission was the donation of a gift for a child or young teenager, which was donated to the Christmas Hamper effort. All together, PrimaCare donated over 38 gifts and $287.
This Family Health Team is already looking forward to next year with a goal to beat their success of this year.
