DOH-Putnam, Healthy Families Florida played Santa for seniors this year. After learning that 45 residents in a local nursing home would not have visitors or gifts to open this year, DOH-Putnam adopted the residents. DOH-Putnam employees collected 45 bags with blankets, socks and word puzzle books to deliver to the residents who may not have any holiday cheer this season or throughout the year. Socks, blankets and puzzle books are simple items that tend to be overlooked as heartfelt gifts. This year, these gifts brightened the spirits of 45 individuals who otherwise would have had none.

Christmas On the Square

In December, DOH-Calhoun and Liberty partnered with the Chamber of Commerce and participated in Calhoun Christmas On the Square and Love for Liberty Craft Fair as well as the Blountstown and Bristol Christmas Parades. They provided hands on activities for children which gave the opportunity to engage with staff and become familiar with the faces they will see when coming to the clinic for services. This proved to be a successful outreach activity that connected DOH-Calhoun and Liberty with the community and provided an opportunity to spread some holiday cheer!
