Thank You Gifts to Hospital Workers

Thank you note and gift basket gift collection for workers at Gundersen and Mayo

Help say ‘thank you’ to our many dedicated neighbors working at Gundersen and Mayo caring for patients during the pandemic. In appreciation, members of the UWL community are putting together gift baskets to be delivered to workers at both hospitals. Donations of small gifts (roughly $5 or less in value) such as individual hot cocoa packs, microwave popcorn, $5 gift cards, socks, candy bars, coffee mugs, knit scarves, card decks, games, puzzles,  etc., are being collected from Monday, January 17 – Friday, February 4. Handwritten thank you notes are especially welcome.  (A limited number of blank note cards will be available at the Student Union Information Desk, but feel free to write your note in any way you wish.)  Donations can be dropped at the Student Union Information Desk, the Cleary Alumni and Friends Welcome Desk, and the Provost’s Office (227 Graff Main Hall). Friends and community members are welcome to participate. Hospital liaisons said thank you notes have had the greatest impact on hospital staff. Questions about the drive can be sent to
