The DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC), the Foundation and GroupOne is wrapping up its volunteer efforts for 2017, with record contributions from staff members.

For the Hurricane Harvey campaign, a total of 1,876 items including food, toiletries, diapers and blankets were collected. The items were donated to Trusted World, which in turn immediately shipped the resources to Houston.

The annual food drive for the North Texas Food Bank generated 78 pounds of food which will provide 65 meals for chronically hungry children, families and senior citizens. Additional donations included $130 in cash.

This year’s DFW Salvation Army Angel Tree efforts provided gifts for 15 infants, children and senior citizens. Forty gifts were donated with a value of more than $1,000.

Finally, a March of Dimes drive generated $350 in donations.

Executives of DFWHC, the Foundation and GroupOne would like to thank staff members for their generosity in 2017.
