Giving Back To The Community
Gerber Memorial employees spend afternoon volunteering on MLK Day
FREMONT – More than a dozen employees from Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial spent their afternoon Monday volunteering at TrueNorth Community Services as part of the national observation of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
“Martin Luther King Jr. embodied the spirit of giving back to the community and standing up for those who are less fortunate, so today is a good opportunity to put those ideals into action,” said administrative assistant Kerri Wiseman. “Gerber Memorial employees are actively involved in our community 365 days a year because we live and work here in Newaygo County. Today gives us the chance to renew our commitment and to...
...encourage our neighbors across the community to join us in this ongoing effort to build a stronger, healthier Newaygo County.”
“True North is grateful for our community partners and their willingness to take time out of their busy schedules to give back and support families and individuals in need,” said Dave Wingard Director of Research and Strategic Development. “Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial and its staff have always stepped up to support our community. On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, they’re helping us shine a spotlight on the many ways we can support those in need.”
Dr. King devoted his life’s work to causes of equality and social justice. He taught that through nonviolence and service to one another, problems such as hunger, homelessness, prejudice and discrimination can be overcome. Dr. King’s teachings and call to serving others continue to guide many in addressing our nation’s most pressing needs – poverty, economic insecurity, job loss and education.
