community ::: annual holiday project
The holiday season is an exciting time of year at Mayfield, bringing out the best in everyone. Year after year, physicians and associates come together to bring holiday cheer to those less fortunate in our community. Since 2001, we have collected over 900 gifts and $12,000 to support our holiday activities.
Building on past successes, our 2012 Holiday Project was bigger than ever. We extended our reach to provide a greater impact and to share the joy of the season with those in need—young, old, sick and hungry—in our community. This was our 14th year to help FACE, third year to support the school, and first year to extend our reach to include the children’s homes and nursing home.
Here’s a snapshot of what we accomplished in 2012
We adopted 58 children for our gift-giving project.
• 25 children from The Children’s Home of Cincinnati, a private, nonprofit organization and a leading provider of education and mental health treatment for children who face significant social, behavioral, and learning challenges;
• 11 children served by FACE (For AIDS Children Everywhere), a Cincinnati-based agency dedicated to providing services to children and their families affected by HIV/AIDS; and
• 22 eighth-grade students at South Avondale School, which serves students pre-K to grade 8 in the Avondale community and is located just a few blocks from Mayfield’s corporate offices.
We also joined residents of Meadowbrook Care Center, a skilled nursing home facility, for holiday treats, songs of the season, and conversation. We collected household essentials for Living Hope Transitional Homes, a local non-profit organization that provides a loving, secure environment for women and children in transition from homelessness to stable, independent living. And we provided canned goods and other food items to help re-stock the shelves at FACE.
