My Hill-Rom colleagues from the Cary, NC office filled and delivered around 100 buckets to the Duke Children’s Hospital in Durham, NC.   One grandmother sent the following thank you note when her grandson received a bucket.  Every single person volunteering for Bucket Buddies makes a difference!

“Good morning Deanna & Team,

I want to reach out to you and thank you from the bottom of my heart for my grandson’s bucket delivery at Duke Hospital yesterday. He is 3 weeks old today and we are blessed to finally be able to bring him home tomorrow!
It brought me such joy to see the older children playing with their buckets as we walked in. It was a unexpected and pleasant surprise when we got to my grandson’s room and saw that you also delivered buckets to the littlest of children.
Even though he will be too young to remember any of this, as a family who has been weary/worried the last 3 weeks, to walk into his hospital room yesterday and see the thoughtful gesture from your group, brought HUGE smiles to our faces.
When he grows up, we will make sure he knows about the kind people who generously donated their time and efforts to make our family smile and bring joy to the children fighting hard battles.
Forever Grateful,   Carla A.”
