Since Red River ER opened its doors earlier this year, we have worked to get involved with numerous community outreach events. From our food drive in August to last month’s sock drive, we have been engaging with our generous Sherman and Texoma communities to help those in need. Now, with the cold weather, and families coming together for the holidays, we were proud to host our very first Keep Texoma WarmER event.
The Keep Texoma WarmER drive worked to collect blankets for people in need. With the help of local businesses, like Edward Jones Financial Advisor Asa Jessee, Lana’s Salon & Day Spa, and Remax of North Texas, Red River ER was able to gather more than 60 blankets for the drive. Our staff then delivered these donations to The Crisis Center, a designated emergency shelter by the Health & Human Services Commission in Sherman Texas and to North Texas Youth Connection.
The Crisis Center is one of only 73 like it in the entire state of Texas and is a shelter for victims of family violence and sexual assault. This center serves an area of over 3000 square miles, which encompasses Wichita Falls, Plano, Greenville, and even as far north as Durant, Oklahoma.
North Texas Youth Connections, is a shelter which was founded in 1976, focused on serving runaway and homeless youths. Since its founding more than 30 years ago, it has given support to children in need and families who have been left on the streets.
Being able to bring much needed blankets and bedding supplies to these organizations made Red River ER staff proud to be a part of this community. “It always warms my heart to see how much people are willing to give in this area,” said Tiffany Wills, Red River ER’s Facility Administrator. “Especially during the holidays, it is wonderful to see how generous our patients and families are.” With our first blanket drive a success, Red River ER is celebrating the holiday season right.
To support our community, which does so much to help those in need, our facility will be open during the holidays. Our 24/7 concierge-level care is available on Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and every other day of the year. For patients of all ages, we are proud to offer the very best in emergency medicine.
