On December 11, 2015, some forty directors and managers of Lodi Health and Lodi Memorial Hospital Foundation completed a two-day leadership retreat. At 11:15 hospital CEO, Daniel Wolcott formed six teams and each person on the team was given a new $100 bill. The assignment was to go to lunch as a team and buy gifts for Christmas to be exchanged upon return. As with most gift exchanges there was a variety of offerings, but what happened that day was truly special.
Several teams opted to give their funds to support others. One team spent their time driving all over Lodi supporting causes and people that have fewer opportunities than most. Here is a list of the donations made within one hour:
