Doing Our Part for the Community by Grace Crowe – KSB Community Wellness Advocate
KSB is involved in a variety of activities in the community. Each activity provides us as an organization the opportunity to support the agencies that are going the extra step to serve our patients and their families. Though each piece we support is important, there is always one small moment that makes us realize what a great contribution the KSB Family is to those we serve.
Recently, our Professional Development Group (PDG) worked for Buddy Bags. I wrote in this space about PDG just last week. Buddy Bags is a community-based program that supplies food during the weekends for children that may not have other meal options when school is dismissed. When Buddy Bags needed help, PDG stepped right up.
At a last minute request, the PDG members volunteered their personal time as well as some help from their family members to make sure that week’s supply of meals was packed for the kids. It took twelve people a mere hour of work to make sure the task was complete. It was a small moment that had a big impact.
KSB thanks Buddy Bags for the hard work they do for our kids. We are privileged to help, and look forward to the many opportunities we will have in the future to meet the needs of our community!
