Anna June was lucky enough to get one of these gingerbread people.
Can you guess how many there are? 230.
230 is the number of people helped by the UAB Benevolent Fund's Employee Emergency Assistance Program last year. It was a dramatic increase over previous years, so we decided to celebrate with some cookies from Mix bakery downtown at our kickoff event, featuring 15 local agencies that benefit directly from our donations.
It was definitely worth celebrating.
We're in the midst of our annual Benevolent Fund campaign, so my brain may be clouded and my posts may not be regular. I'm charged with convincing all 200+ employees in our division to donate to the cause this year.
