WellSpan Health was recently honored with United Way of Adams County’s 2014 Robert C. Hoffman Award.
The award recognizes the team for raising the most money through corporate and employee gifts for the past year’s campaign. WellSpan had won the honor from 2008 to 2011.
WellSpan employees contributed more than $34,750.
United Way of Adams County’s 2013 campaign raised more than $330,000 in support of programs that benefit Adams County residents.
“Every year that I am a part of this campaign, I am so proud of the generosity of the people of this organization,” said WellSpan team chair Penny Martin, Human Resources.
“Even during difficult times, our employees never falter in their desire to give and help those less fortunate in our community.
"WellSpan employees contribute an average of 10 percent of the total money raised for the United Way of Adams County each year. That really says something special about the people who are here."
Martin, along with campaign leaders Brittney Forsythe, Gettysburg Internal Medicine; and Danielle Shull, Adams Health Center Patient Registration; accepted the award from United Way’s Kathy Nelson. Other campaign leaders were Joan Fleshman, Imaging Services; Missy Shupe, Population Health Management; and Kim Wakefield, Human Resources.
The award initially will be displayed in the United Way case near the WellSpan Gettysburg Hospital cafeteria.
It will then travel to select WellSpan Adams County locations during the year.
