(click for larger version)
01/09/2008 - At 7:45 on Thursday morning, Dec. 20, the staff of Paul B. Hall Regional Medical Center began assembling 100 Christmas baskets to distribute to needy families in three counties in the hospital's region. By 8:04 a.m., all the baskets had been filled and picked up by employees of the agencies in each county which verified and supplied the names and addresses of the families in Johnson, Martin and Magoffin counties.The families not only received all the essential "fixings" for a traditional Christmas dinner, but each basket contained a pamphlet of Christmas carols with the Christmas story printed on the back cover. Staff members most directly involved with assembling and loading the Christmas baskets under the direction of HR director Samantha Castle and coordinator Mike Lazar included assembly persons Robert Barker, Marlene Maynard, Julia Knight, Tammy Childers, Jennifer Hardin, Judy Salyer, Ronnie Ross, Heather Martin, JoAnn Allen, Trish Foley, Shelly Blair, Norman Bond, Steve Hazelett and Larry Walker. Food Pickup and loading workers were Kent Preece, Scott Stewart, Thomas Pemberton, Mark Hall and Willis Fletcher. Funds for the annual Paul B. Hall Christmas basket project were raised during the year by staff participation in various projects.
