The tragic death of Nancy Pitts has sparked attention within the Saratoga community about how to deal with the homeless population during severe weather. Currently, there are no emergency shelters in Saratoga. However, there are food pantries and organizations like Shelters of Saratoga, who offer the homeless affordable living, warm food, clothing, and life counseling. And today, we had the opportunity to contribute to this great cause!
With Christmas being only two weeks away, the staff at Mountain Media thought it would be great to just truly surprise someone who could use it. We decided to pay a visit to the Saratoga Hospital and randomly pick a patient who hasn’t had a lot of visitors.
When we arrived at the Saratoga Hospital, I informed the front desk staff about our Kindness Campaign and the Act we were trying to accomplish. Followed by some smiles, they both decided someone on the Nursing Home Floor would be best choice here.
They gave us directions to the elevator and instructed us to go to the second floor. Off of the elevator, the friendly nursing home staff greeted us. I caught a couple smiles along the way and people were whispering about how pretty the bouquet was. The excitement was building as the nurses discussed who they thought deserved it.
