    Portsmouth Regional Hospital Hosts Holiday Gift Donation for Families First
     
    Portsmouth – Twenty-four families who receive services from Families First Health & Support Center were able to make their children’s wishes for gifts come true, thanks to the generosity Portsmouth Regional Hospital employees. For the third year in a row, hospital staff members purchased and wrapped holiday gifts for families, not knowing the recipients’ names but only their ages and what was on their wish list.
     
    Most of the families have a Families First home visitor. At a party to celebrate the gift collection before parents came to pick the gifts up, Families First home visitor Beth Searle-Spratt told hospital employees, “I am the lucky one who gets the hugs and sees the happy tears when the parents see the gifts, but you are the ones who deserve the thanks.”
     

    Families First, the Seacoast’s community health center,  provides primary, prenatal and oral health care, as well as parenting and family programs, to about 6,500 Seacoast residents each year. More information is at 603-422-8208 andFamiliesFirstSeacoast.org.
