It was a heart-warming gesture of kindness and generosity displayed by Brooks-TLC Hospital System, Inc. employees at both the Brooks and TLC campuses. It took four (4) carloads and eight (8) volunteers to transport and sort the array of clothing, toys, and books that were donated to families served by The Master’s Plan Community Church in Dayton.


Following an employee nomination process, The Master’s Plan was selected as this year’s charity to receive gifts from the annual Giving Tree at both the Brooks and TLC campuses. The ministry is run by Angie Mardino-Miller, RN, Emergency Department, TLC Campus, and was nominated by TLC employee, Jane Thomas.  While other worthwhile charities were nominated for consideration, those organizations did not have a need for children’s Christmas gifts at this time.

So, this year’s Giving Tree partnership was formed.

Each year, The Master’s Plan serves 6500 community members in need with its FREE food pantry, Thanksgiving dinners, household items, toys, clothing, school supplies, and rescue housing for abuse or home fire victims.

Brooks-TLC Hospital System, Inc. and The Master’s Plan wish to thank those who donated to help make the holidays brighter for those less fortunate in our community.
