Franklin Community Health Network hosted a departmental “Holiday” basket contest this week to add additional funds to its annual United Way campaign. The event raised $2,002.
Fourteen departments took part in the contest that required participants to start with a copy paper box and from there let creativity be their guide. Departmental employees donated toys, gift certificates, games, ornaments, nonperishable items, Maine items, and more to fill their baskets. Staff then placed bids through a silent auction for purchase.
A panel of judges that included United Way executive director Lisa Laflin selected the following winners based on creativity: 1) Toyland Express by Surgical Services; 2) Tom Turkey submitted by the Lab; 3) Maine Christmas by Radiology; and honorable mentions were awarded to the administrative wing for the Tree of Thanks and Human Resources for Crafty the Snowman.
The Tree of Thanks, submitted by several departments in the administrative wing, was also the grand prize winner for receiving the highest bid—$600.
