Staff at Texas Health Azle Hospital donated household items and furniture or a great cause. Texas Health Azle held a Fundraiser and Rummage Sale for the American Diabetes Association’s Camp Aurora on April 9, 2016 in the hospital parking lot where employees volunteered their time-off (reimbursed by Texas Health Resources for their volunteer time). The team lead by Michelle Hopper of the Endoscopy Department, placed an ad in the local newspaper which read, “Texas Health Azle Rummage Sale, all proceeds benefit children attending American Diabetes Camp Aurora.”
Thanks to employees and everyone for donating, volunteering, shopping or stopping by the Rummage Sale this past weekend. The pictures show how much fun was had – there was even dancing! We raised over $1,200 to send children with diabetes to Camp Aurora, where they can have an exciting week of outdoor activities while learning valuable lessons on positive diabetes management. A check was presented to Sherry Hill, Texas Region – Camp Director of the American Diabetes Association on May 25th. It was a success and the staff is considering making it an annual event.
