We believe in the importance of serving our community outside the walls of our hospital to represent Bronson’s values
A group of physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists from Bronson Methodist Hospital Acute Care Rehab volunteered with Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes again this year through the Little Help, Big Difference Campaign. Last year a small group of us partnered with this organization and had such a great experience, we were excited to go back this year with twice as many team members. We spent time sorting and packing large amounts of food donations collected from the community that will be used for families in need over the holiday season. We learned that Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes typically serves 800 individuals every day with an increase to around 1000 individuals during the holidays. Our team greatly enjoyed working together to serve the community through this experience. We believe in the importance of serving our community outside the walls of our hospital to represent Bronson’s values of building trust and respect. Not only did this volunteer experience give us the chance to represent Bronson in a positive light, but it gave us a chance to practice “being well” through community service and team building.
