The hospital recently conducted a basket blessing program, which included singing of carols and refreshments, after various departments’ employees selected families and purchased gifts.

Following the blessing, the baskets were delivered to the homes by the sponsoring departments. Some 176 gifts also were donated to Family Advocates in LaPorte, an agency that serves abused and neglected children, as well as to the local Salvation Army Angel Tree.
