For the twenty-third year, Winneshiek Medical Center providers and staff have supported families seeking a brighter Christmas through the Giving Wreath program, coordinated with Northeast Iowa Community Action. This year, the medical center adopted five local families.

Radiology staff coordinated the effort at WMC, which included distributing tags, collecting gifts and delivering them to the Northeast Iowa Community Action offices. “Our staff have been very generous, with some taking two and three tags this year” says Sarah Urmanski, director of Radiology. “It has been fun to watch them come in; people really went all out for families they have never even met.”

“It is heartwarming to see such an amazing collection of gifts,” says Nicole Poirier, a technician in the Radiology department and also a coordinator of this year’s project. “I am so pleased to be part of such a meaningful project this holiday season.”
