Chestnut Hill Hospital (CHH) employees contributed turkeys and all the trimmings to provide more than 45 Thanksgiving dinners to local families in need. This year, the bounty was received by the Germantown Avenue Crisis Ministry (GACM) that serves vulnerable residents of Northwest Philadelphia. Members of the Hospital staff assembled baskets that were distributed to families, identified by the crisis center, who live in and around our neighborhood.
