WESTFIELD — Team members from Baystate Noble Hospital kicked off the 2023 holiday season in early December by collecting toys and gifts to benefit families in Greater Westfield served by Behavioral Health Network.
For many years, Baystate Noble team members have helped brighten Christmas for many families in need, and this year was no different, said Lissette Grimaldi, chief Nursing officer and chief administrative officer at Baystate Noble. “Our team looks forward to donating toys and gifts each year. Giving back is in this team’s DNA. We are so happy to be able to provide some holiday cheer to families in need in our own community.”
Jean Frater, program director of Children and Youth Services at Behavioral Health Network, added that “it means so much to those folks who are struggling to know that our community cares and is willing to be generous with their time and money during the busy holiday season to provide these gifts. It may seem like a small kindness, but it grows bigger in the hearts of those who are suffering.”
