St. Rose Employees Assist a “Hero at Home”

Hard at work ...

Cleaning up the yard.

The St. Rose Rebuilding Together Team

Employees at St. Rose Dominican Hospitals take the “mission” of supporting our community very seriously. On Saturday, November 5, a large group of employee volunteers collaborated with Rebuilding Together on their newly-formed fall program called “Heroes at Home.” This program helps military veterans or their surviving spouses/families with rehabilitating their homes.

 St. Rose employees worked on the home of a wonderful 90-year-old retired military nurse (choosing this home was especially fitting considering the owner worked in health care). Her house needed painting and a great deal of clean up in the front and back yards.

The clean up effort was very successful, and so many volunteers pitched in that everything was done – not in one day – but before noon. The appreciative owner sent this very kind note to everyone who helped:

Dear Volunteers,
A belated note of thanks for the wonderful work on my home on Nov. 5.  The planning and coordination was flawless.  The volunteers worked so well together.  I will be forever grateful to those wonderful people.  I must note those young people that worked so diligently.  All of you are doing God’s work and my prayers are with you.  Many thanks to the sister and priest.  Thank you for you.
H. Sands
