PUTNAM — Day Kimball Healthcare’s (DKH) Warmth and Wellness Holiday Drive returned for a second year collecting more than 40 cases of personal care and warmth items, including hats, gloves, blankets, and more, for those in need across northeastern Connecticut.
“Our mission is centered on healthcare, but good health begins with caring for the whole person, ensuring their needs for things like basic warmth and personal care are met,” said DKH President and CEO, Anne Diamond. “It is our responsibility to support the health and wellness of our neighbors in need, and our annual Warmth and Wellness Holiday Drive is one way we are able to accomplish this.”
Hundreds of donated items were delivered the week of January 28 to community agencies such as TEEG, Interfaith Human Services’ food pantry, and the DKH Family Advocacy Program, and new this year, distributions were extended to DKH’s own outpatient services including Diagnostic Imaging and Behavioral Health.
 “Thanks to the generosity of our staff and the community, we doubled the results of last year’s drive,” said DKH Director of Development, Kristen Willis. “These donations make a big difference for individuals and families in our community when they need it most. This spirit of generosity and thoughtfulness is at the heart of all we do at Day Kimball Healthcare and throughout the Northeast CT community.”
