Hospital emergency department staff buys 134 gifts for South Sac school
Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento nurses, doctors to deliver presents on FRIDAY
December 17, 2013 (Sacramento): Emergency department personnel from Kaiser Permanente’s South Sacramento Medical Center will deliver 134 wrapped holiday presents to students at Susan B. Anthony Elementary School between 9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. on Friday (December 20).
The hospital’s ER staff adopted the school three years ago when workers learned that many of the low-income children would not receive holiday presents. This marks the third year that the Kaiser Permanente team has answered the students’ letters to “Santa” by buying and wrapping holiday gifts, said emergency department nurse Steven Patras, who is organizing the event.
Susan B. Anthony Principal Lee Yang said he was grateful for the kindness and consideration shown by Kaiser’s staff. “They are great role models for our children,” he said. “Through their actions, students are learning how to make a difference in the lives of others.”
