Thanks to the Ochsner Health System, The Sister Margaret Mannion Helping Hands Committee helped distribute hundreds of items to CHRISTUS Spohn Associates who were affected by Hurricane Harvey. CHRISTUS Spohn Associates were able to receive much needed items such as baby supplies, food, pet supplies, linens, toiletries, cleaning supplies and school supplies to help in the recovery process.
Seven CHRISTUS Spohn Associates who are a part of the Helping Hands Committee worked over two days to unload, unwrap and sort all of the supplies into stations at CHRISTUS Spohn Hospital Corpus Christi – Shoreline.
On October 2, 2017, volunteers worked for hours helping Associates fill their bags with items that they needed most. One Associate even received a mini baby shower gift after all of her gifts, given by family, had been ruined by the flood in Rockport, Texas.
Once all Associates had been helped, all remaining supplies were sent to other non-profit organizations such as Rainbow House and Good Samaritan Rescue Mission.
Thanks again to Ochsner Health System for collecting and shipping all of the goods to CHRISTUS Spohn.
The Sister Margaret Mannion Helping Hands Fund offers emergency aid for CHRISTUS Spohn Associates who have an unexpected financial need or crisis. It is our obligation and ministry to take care of our Associates when in dire circumstances; we are able to do this abundantly, with exceptional gifts from generous donors.
