You may have read about VPA’s Albany Medical Center team starting a Valet Children’s Fund. Dave Maxim, valet manager at Rochester General Hospital, and his team took the initative to get their own  fund started.  After pooling their tips they were able to raise $408 to donate to Rochester General’s Foundation’s Playthings for Pediatrics Fund.

With the money they donated, the hospital was able to purchase 2 Nintendo DSI, security cables with padlocks, and a bunch of downloadable content (the games are on the hard drive, so there are no game cartridges to lose or keep track of!)  Hospital employees were thrilled to receive the donation. The nursing manager sent an email to thank Dave and his team “David thank you to you and your team for this generous donation, it will provide hours of entertainment to our patients.  I will also be sharing this story on my Health/Care Board that is posted in the unit for next month.”

Great job to Dave, Ryan, and the RGH team for taking the initiative to start a Western NY Valet Children’s Fund. We can’t wait to hear about your future donations!
