WARSAW — Great Lakes Caring Home Health and Hospice presented a $750 check to the Kate’s Kart on Jan. 10.
Great Lakes Caring’s Warsaw and Fort Wayne branches won the donation as a result of a company-wide program called Shred for Bread, where employees were encouraged to visit their local branch and shred any confidential patient documentation they no longer need. The top three branches with the highest percentage of participation received the “bread” – a cash donation to a local nonprofit organization of their choice.
The Warsaw and Fort Wayne branches won second and third place and chose to donate their combined prize to the Kate’s Kart. Brynn Shultz from Great Lakes Caring, share that they chose Kate’s Kart because, “they have a wonderful program for children that are hospitalized. Their story of how the organization was started touched our hearts.”
The South Bend branch won first place and chose to donate to the American Red Cross of Kansas.
Great Lakes Caring holds a strong belief in adhering to HIPAA compliance. Great Lakes Caring clinicians’ main priority is providing superior quality health care every day to their patients, and Shred for Bread provides a quarterly reminder for them to stay compliant – Great Lakes Caring complies because they care.
