‘Share and Care’

In the chapel of Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center, Camden, Santa Claus stands by some of the gifts collected for families in need. Employees within multiple departments at the medical center, physicians and friends of the hospital have “adopted” 91 local families in need for the holidays. On Dec. 19, all the gifts bought for each family were blessed and prepared for delivery or pick-up. This is the 27th year that the Share and Care event has been held. To date, more than 2,000 families have been helped.
