MedAssist rounded out October with one more charitable giving project with Kosair Children’s Hospital (KCH) in Louisville, KY. In addition to the Rainforest Week donation we delivered earlier this month, we pulled a little something extra out of our hat for Halloween. KCH brings the Halloween spirit into the hospital through an on-site trick-or-treat event. Each year MedAssist raises donations to purchase treats for the children being treated at KCH. This year our employees’ generous donations enabled us to purchase more than $2,000 of goodies and candy! Jessica Bratcher, Mary Lococo, and Tanieka Thompson personally delivered our donation to KCH during Halloween week. As always, we are more than excited to make Halloween special for the patients at KCF.
