The generosity of Beaumont Health System employees is overwhelming. Each of the three hospitals collaborated with charities to make sure children in need had presents for the holidays. At Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak the staff purchased presents for more than 280 children at the Judson Center, a Royal-Oak based nonprofit organization, serving abused and neglected children and adults with developmental disabilities. At Beaumont Hospital, Troy employees worked in the Adopt-A-Family program through Oakland County Services, serving families in Southeastern Michigan. At Beaumont Hospital, Grosse Pointe bins were filled with toys, blankets, mittens and other winter needs for children and adults at LifeBuilders, a Detroit nonprofit that helps people struggling with unemployment, homelessness and addictions.
As Director of Community Affairs at Beaumont, I’m proud to belong to this caring, compassionate health system. Darlene Nikisic, shown in the photo, is part of the Community Affairs staff, and she coordinated the collection of gifts for the Judson Center.
