The Crouse Spirit of Giving: PromptCare Style


Gift Tree PC2012Staff members at Crouse PromptCare care for all kinds of people with all kinds of ailments and all kinds of needs. In fact, more than 24,000 patients came through their doors this past year.


“Many of our patients are in need of material items like new shoes and warm clothing,” says manager Janet Ricciardiello, in explaining the idea for this holiday ‘giving tree’ staff have set up in their break room.


The tree is adorned with hats, mittens, blankets, scarves, stuffed animals, children’s books and even children’s toothbrushes.  “We can’t believe how well it’s been received,” adds Janet. When staff see a patient who may appreciate an item on the tree, they go into the break room, collect the item from on or under the tree, and present it to the patient.


“Patients are very appreciative and it makes us feel like we’ve made a little difference in their lives.” In just two weeks, the giving tree has been replenished three times with items purchased by PromptCare staff.


Now that's the Crouse spirit!
