Catholic Charities Receives Donation from Lab Services at St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital

NEWBURGH – The Laboratory Services Department at St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital recently donated $200 to Catholic Charities Community Services of Orange and Sullivan. The funds were collected as part of the Department’s recognition of Lab Services Week at the hospital. Under the leadership of Laboratory Services Director Len Genesee and Manager Lynnette Ketcham, the Department selected Catholic Charities to be the beneficiary of their generosity. The funds were donated by individuals in the department to support Catholic Charities’ mission to help those less fortunate in the community where employees live and work, by offering a variety of social safety net programs, including emergency food and shelter assistance.

The Laboratory Services team gathered to present the donation to Kristin Jensen, Catholic Charities’ Chief Advancement Officer, at St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital’s Newburgh campus.

“Catholic Charities is grateful for the support from the kind and generous Laboratory Service Department members at St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital,” said Jensen. “While they were being recognized during Lab Services Week for the significant work they do, they took it upon themselves to pay it forward and help others in the community by making this donation to Catholic Charities. We are fortunate to count the Lab Services Department and St. Luke’s Cornwall Hospital among our important community partners,” added Jensen.

Throughout the year, the Laboratory Services Department also participates in Catholic Charities Back-to-School Supply Drive and the Adopt-a-Family Christmas program.
