SoutheastHEALTH 'Angels' Bring Christmas Cheer to Home Care Clients

December 22, 2014

Christmas is a little brighter this year for clients of SoutheastHEALTH’s Hospice, Building Blocks and Home Health programs thanks to the Angel Tree program.

SoutheastHEALTH employees donated wrapped presents to about 80 clients across the southeast Missouri region who were in need of basic necessities such as diapers, coats, socks and even a car seat. Employees chose “angel” ornaments from a Christmas tree in the Southeast Hospital cafeteria. Each ornament listed items needed by a particular client. Southeast employees purchased those items and wrapped the presents, dropping them off at Southeast Home Care Services in Doctors’ Park in Cape Girardeau.
