PHSW Members Give Back

Going into the holiday season, the shelves were almost bare in PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center's Dove Pantry–an onsite food pantry for hospital employees. In December, OFNHP President Adrienne Enghouse challenged the steward council to do something about it.

OFNHP steward and Ultrasound Tech Shawna Ross stepped up to lead the project, spreading the word about the donation drive throughout the month of January. Through Facebook posts, flyers, break room visits, and social networks, stewards advertised the drive and collected over 500 lbs of food and supplies.

On January 31, volunteers met to package items–making sure each one had a union sticker–before delivering the items to the pantry and organizing the shelves.
