GLOVERSVILLE, NY – Knowing a child will receive a much-desired gift for Christmas is the greatest feeling on Christmas morning. Thanks to Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home staff, local children will receive gifts from their Christmas list. Today marks the twenty-eighth year that Nathan Littauer Hospital & Nursing Home employees have donated to local children. As in years past, these presents will be delivered to participating organizations and given directly to children in need. Since 1994, the Gingerbread Project of Nathan Littauer Hospital has worked with agencies and families to help make holidays special. This year, hundreds of generous gifts; each beautifully wrapped and shopped for by employees, were given away to children in need. This year, presents were given to children in our community through the Mental Health Association of Fulton and Montgomery Counties.
“It always gives us a great feeling around the holidays,” says Kelly Colby-Giudilli, Development Coordinator of The Littauer Foundation. “For people to make such generous donations to the children; it fills you with holiday spirit. This was yet again, an extraordinary year. We could barely move in the office. I liken it to Santa’s workshop.”
Nathan Littauer Hospital employees, time and time again, show the true meaning of Christmas. Local children are fortunate to benefit from the generosity of Littauer staff and Auxiliary members.
Nathan Littauer thanks all who participated in the Gingerbread Project. These acts of kindness make the holiday memorable for so many in our community.
