UMC hosted a Hero Celebration for the Lubbock Health Department, to say thank you for partnering with our UMC Heroes as we battle the pandemic together. As we all know, the pandemic has brought on new challenges for the Lubbock community, and the Lubbock Health Department has been fighting with us every step of the way.
On August 30, UMC provided lunch for the Lubbock Health Department as well as 45 boxes filled with goodies for each member of the department. UMC President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Funderburk was also on hand to say a few words as UMC staff handed out the boxes.
“UMC wanted to recognize all of the Lubbock Health Department employees and let them know we greatly appreciate our partnership,” said Phillip Waldmann, UMC Executive Vice President of Operations and Chief Operating Officer. “They, along with all health care workers, have been at the front lines of the battle for over 18 months and have earned our admiration and appreciation. Together, we served to keep our community safe and wanted the Health Department to take part in a hero celebration.”
We are so grateful for our UMC Heroes and the Lubbock Health Department, together we remain firm, not fearful!
