Celebrating a Season of Giving: HNL Lab Medicine’s Angel Tree Spreads Holiday Cheer to Local Families
In the true spirit of the holidays, HNL Lab Medicine is thrilled to share the heartwarming success of our Angel Tree, now in its third and most successful year. This initiative, fueled by the generosity and compassion of our incredible team, has brightened the lives across the Lehigh Valley community.
Initially we worked with the Children’s Home of Easton and Operation Santa Claus to collect donations for 53 children and 21 families. Because of the overwhelming response from the HNL Lab Medicine team, all Angels were immediately adopted. With additional children and families still on waiting lists, we conducted two additional rounds of donations. This year, our Angel Tree reached new heights, making a meaningful impact on the lives of:
- 136 individuals from 45 different families from Operation Santa Claus
- 78 children from Operation Santa Claus
- 26 children from The Children’s Home of Easton
- 27 children from The Neighborhood Center (Salvation Army Allentown)
Our dedicated team worked tirelessly to select and prepare each gift, ensuring they carry the magic of the season. Due to the collaborative efforts of our amazing colleagues, these gifts are being lovingly delivered to their recipients, spreading joy and warmth throughout our community.
Tiffani Blevins, our Operational Excellence Communication Specialist, shared her heartfelt appreciation, saying, “With the support of our CEO and Leadership Team, our amazing colleagues, we were on a mission to make Christmas magical for those in need. Every child deserves the wonder of the season, and our team is all in, creating joy and spreading the magic of Christmas. My heart is so full at the generosity of our team and the impact we get to make year after year.”
Our Angel Tree program isn’t just about gifts; it’s a testament to our commitment to community engagement and making a positive impact during the holiday season. As we approach the final round of deliveries for Operation Santa Claus, we remain dedicated to spreading joy and creating lasting memories for families in the Lehigh Valley.
Thank you for being part of our community, and we wish you a joyful and magical holiday season. For more heartwarming stories and updates, stay connected with HNL Lab Medicine.
