Castleview Hospital Press Release
Castleview Hospital had the opportunity this holiday season to give back to the community and assist several charities located close to home.
Castleview Hospital paired with United Way Eastern Utah and adopted seven families from an angel tree in the community who were in need this Christmas. Castleview employees came together and subbed for Santa by donating items the children needed such as shoes, clothes and coats as well as items on their wish list.
Castleview Hospital also had the opportunity to participate in a pajama and book drive to donate to the Pajama Program that provides new pajamas and books to children in need. Many of them have been waiting to be adopted and have been abandoned, abused or neglected and have never enjoyed the simple comfort of having a mother or a father tuck them in at bedtime and read to them. Castleview Hospital donated 20% of the donations to the angel tree, 40% to Friends of the Children’s Justice Center and the remaining 40% was donated to the Pajama Program.

A food drive was also hosted at the hospital to raise food items for the local food bank this holiday season. Three large barrels were overflowing with donations. The surgery center was the department of the hospital who contributed the most, filling one entire barrel themselves. Castleview Hospital also donated over 100 hams to the food bank this season.
This holiday season reminds us that we are blessed to be a part of this great community. Castleview Hospital wishes you and your loved ones a safe, healthy and happy holiday season.
