Physician Health Partners (PHP) was recently named Company of the Year by The Action Center, a non-profit organization that provides immediate response to basic human needs in Jefferson County.
Through this award, PHP was recognized for their efforts in funding The Action Center’s Thanksgiving food box distribution for the second consecutive year. PHP staff members donated $20,000 and more than 350 volunteer hour to the cause, allowing The Action Center to provide 2,100 Thanksgiving food boxes to those in need.
“Serving our community is a critical part of our mission,” said Ken Nielsen, president and chief executive officer, Physician Health Partners. “We are honored to support The Action Center and are proud of our employees who embrace our mission and continue to support the communities we serve.”
In addition to the Thanksgiving food boxes, PHP donated school supplies to The Action Center’s school supply distribution and $4,000 to the Santa Shop, a program that assists parents who need help getting holiday gifts for their children.
