Employees from Beaumont Health

Instead of a holiday party gift exchange, this generous group from Beaumont Health held a food drive and donated the proceeds to Hawks' Nest. HFC's Mandy Earl worked with Sara Gleicher, Project Manager for Healthy Dearborn, to organize the food drive. Sara’s supervisor, Betty Priskorn VP for Community Health & Outreach for Beaumont, heard a student speak at a presentation she attended about how the Hawks’ Nest saved her life and helped her finish school. In December, nine of their employees came to tour the Hawks’ Nest and drop off their donation. The group donated 80.5 pounds of food and $95.00.
