OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center takes part in Adopt an Angel program
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
For children in the foster care program, the holiday season can be a challenging one. A local hospital is trying to take care of that.
OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center is part of the Foster Care Alliance's Adopt an Angel program. Employees purchase Christmas gifts for foster kids. Today, they loaded the gifts into a delivery truck.
"This is one of those times when the Rockford community really comes together and works on behalf of all our foster kids in care. We are so appreciative of everything they've done for us," says Pattie York, Foster Care Alliance liaison.
The Foster Care Alliance represents nine child welfare agencies in Boone and Winnebago counties.
