Date Posted: Monday, February 01, 2016

Groups of Radiology faculty and staff organized and contributed to a variety of charities during the holiday season.

Interventional Neuroradiology Gives to Homeless Veterans Shelter

Neuro Interventional Radiology Donates to Veterans Shelter

Mary Perras and Chris Brooks with gifts
for the Veteran's Homeless Shelter

Everyone in NeuroIR and some of the administrative staff participated in collecting clothing, toiletries, cleaning supplies and gift cards for Veteran’s Homeless Shelter on Grove Street in Worcester.  They delivered the gifts to the Shelter directly. Mary Perras came up with the idea, instead of giving gifts to each other people could donate to the shelter. Mary was aware of the shelter and was inspired by their own Chris Brooks who is a Navy veteran and has a soft heart for those who have done so much for us and our freedom.

Memorial Donates Gifts for Children

Memorial Radiology staff donated gift wrapped presents for children. The gifts were distributed by the Belmont Community School and Friendly House to children in Worcester.

University Campus Radiology Staff Chose Abby's House as Holiday Charity

Toys and clothing for children, and women, as well as linens and other household goods were gathered and delivered to Abby's House by the University Campus Radiology Staff.

Radiology Administrative Staff Donate to Worcester County Foodbank

The Radiology Administrative Staff decided to donate money to the Worcester County Foodbank instead of a yankee swap gift exchange at their holiday luncheon. Checks totaling $250 were donated to the Food Bank.
