Rogers locations celebrate the holidays01/18/23 03:00:pm
Once again, this holiday season, Rogers teams nationwide came together to get into the holiday spirit.
The Appleton clinic kicked off the holiday season with a donation drive for Harbor House, a local domestic violence shelter. The team also held a Secret Santa, cookie exchange, sugar cookie-decorating station, and upcoming holiday party.
In the spirit of the giving season, the Denver team gathered gifts for a local family that unexpectedly lost their father over the summer. A team member contacted the mother and received a wish list for each of the six children. Together, Team Rogers purchased a wide variety of gifts – from clothing to dolls to LEGO sets – to brighten the family’s first holiday since their loss. Denver also held dress-up days for employees, including Pajama Day and Ugly sweater day.
The Hinsdale team celebrated with a holiday party on December 10. Additionally, as always, the clinic lobby was decked out in holiday cheer and featured a hot chocolate bar for employees to enjoy. The team also held a themed week with dress-up days during the third week of December.
Members of the Kenosha team worked together with patients to add holiday cheer to the clinic’s doors. Check out the photos of their festive designs.
Miami’s team put a new spin on holiday dress-up days with Holiday Hat Day. From elf ears to reindeer antlers, the team had fun getting into the spirit of the season.
The Silver Lake and Silver Lake North teams came together for a good cause by holding a food drive for the Waukesha Food Pantry. A total of 641 items were donated, including food, diapers, and other household items.
The Silver Lake and Silver Lake North teams also found creative ways to celebrate as a team. From December 19 to 23, the team held a spirit week complete with a Winter Wonderland Day, Holiday Swag Day, Holiday Accessories Day, Flannel Day, and Sports Apparel Day. Minute-to-Win-it-inspired “Reindeer Games” provided entertainment and the opportunity to win Jingle Mingle Bingo. Finally, Roger the Elf and his mischievous antics made their annual appearance throughout the month of December.
Additionally, the Focus Depression Recovery Adolescent Residential Care and OCD, Anxiety, and Depression Adolescent Residential Care teams held holiday parties in December to celebrate their incredible work. The former team also decorated the unit with stockings for patients.
For the fourth consecutive year, the San Diego team adopted a military family for the holidays, raising money and buying gifts.
They also marked the season with Ugly Sweater Day, Pajama Day, a Secret Santa gift exchange, and holiday dinner.
Members of the Sheboygan team, including outreach representative Dione Knop, registered nurse Kayla Titus, and clinic assistant Holly Clappes, spent time ringing bells for the Salvation Army at their local Festival Foods grocery store.
