The Mission Viejo Elks donated $1000 and joined with community partners in a beautiful day of sharing and showing appreciation. The community was able to provide lunch meals to all 1200 medical staff working at Mission Hospital and the evening shift consisting of 500 employees received a tasty dessert treat. The words of thanks were continuous as the staff walked by with their lunches.
In a letter of appreciation, Mission Hospital’s Director, Patient Experience & Organization Effectiveness Kopitzee Parra-Thornton, PHD wrote, “On behalf of my colleagues, I would like to thank you once more for your generous donation to Mission Hospital. Our caregivers were so appreciative of
