Departments at UnityPoint Health have gathered to donate food as part of hospital week.
Departments built food sculptures scattered around the hospital during the week.
Deliveries have been donated to The Lord’s Cupboard, Lotus Project, and food pantries in Eagle Grove, Gowrie and Storm Lake.
“We ran a food tower competition where we encouraged each department to create their own food tower sculptures using non-perishable items,” said Alyssa Stanek, Senior Marketing Communications Specialist.
There were a variety of different sculptures, ranging from words of encouragement from management to towers.
UnityPoint Health – Berryhill Center has created a large display with a heart in the center “We care about mental health.”
The Clinic Express Photo Tower was made from photos of the department’s employees. Storm Lake UnityPoint had a large tower with a background. The Marketing Corporation and the Office of Medical Education and Human Resources had a food tower out of the cancer bar.
PI and Quality created a vessel, while Women’s Center and UPAH made the hospital’s logo.
Over a thousand non-perishable items were donated during the week from multiple clinics and departments through UnityPoint Health.
“UnityPoint Health – Fort Dodge is committed to giving back to the communities we serve to help make the world a better place,” said Leah Glasgow, President and CEO of UnityPoint Health – Fort Dodge. “The need for food scarcity came from our CSD plan. We thought it would be fun to kick off hospital week, by encouraging departments to create their own food tower sculptures using non-perishable items.
“Unsurprisingly, we had a lot of involvement. It was both fun and rewarding to see our teams unite to support a good cause.”
