Each quarter we recognize an employee with a humanitarian award.
The humanitarian category of Heart and Soul recognizes employees for acts of kindness and charity who contribute to enhancing and promoting the welfare of humanity in the community, nation or world.
Brenda Stanley is the dietary production coordinator for patient services at Memorial Hospital.
No one wants to be in the hospital. Children can be scared, and it's hard on parents – especially during holidays. That's why patients and parents really appreciated Brenda's recent gifts.
Brenda bought 27 teddy bears for patients at Women and Children's Hospital with her own money while working two jobs. She even helped deliver the bears to all the children on the floor. Staff said the children's eyes lit up when they saw the bears and their parents were very thankful for her generous gift.
