Practice Donates 80 Baskets and Nonperishable Food Items to Families in Need

Middletown, N.Y. – November 27, 2017 – This Thanksgiving holiday, employees of Crystal Run Healthcare brought joy and nourishment to families in need by donating 80 Thanksgiving baskets. In more than 20 offices, employees came together to create generous arrangements filled with Thanksgiving dinner essentials - from table cloths, decorations, and paper goods, to nonperishable food items such as canned goods, dry goods, and mixes.  In addition, the baskets included fresh fruits and vegetables along with Shoprite gift cards, which were donated by Crystal Run’s Physician Partners, in order for families to purchase turkeys.  On the morning of Monday, November 20th, the baskets were collected and distributed to patients and other families in need throughout Orange, Ulster, Sullivan, and Rockland counties. In addition to providing food baskets, Crystal Run also supplied Guild of St. Margaret Soup Kitchen in Middletown, NY, Country Kids Food Pantry in Washingtonville, NY, with nonperishable food items.


This Thanksgiving food drive is one of many philanthropic efforts that the employees of Crystal Run Healthcare participate in and support each year, in order to give back to the local communities.

“I speak on behalf of all of the employees at Crystal Run when I say that we are honored to give back to the community.  Year after year, the generosity of our employees is humbling and the baskets they put together are beautiful. This fundraiser really does make a difference because it helps give people a Thanksgiving meal for their families – something they may not have had otherwise. The families we provide these baskets to are always incredibly appreciative of the support, and this is representative of the close relationship that Crystal Run strives to maintain with its local communities. To brighten up someone’s day and to hopefully make their Thanksgiving that much better – well, that’s just terrific,” said Tara Kammarada, Director of Human Resources at Crystal Run Healthcare.
