Nursing Home Project 2018
Linda Quina and Markus McGraw. Business and Auxiliary Services deliver gifts to Arcadia

UWF Departments in 11th Year of Nursing Home Project

Business and Auxiliary Services (including retirees), Internal Auditing, University Budgets, Controller’s Office, Procurement, Human Resources (and some General Counsel, Vice President and President’s Office staff), have jointly participated in a Nursing Home Project for the past 10 years at Christmas. This project helps to fill a void and provide gifts for theArcadia Health & Rehab Center to distribute to those in need within their facility. It is touching as well as rewarding for all of us to hear how appreciative they are of anything they receive. Gifts collected were delivered on Friday, December 7, 2018 by Linda Quina and Markus McGraw, Business and Auxiliary Services, as they have done in the past. The van was full and the nursing home staff were touched by the generosity! Arcadia handed out the gifts at their Christmas party on December 18.
