LITTLE FALLS, NY – Little Falls Hospital’s employees donate $3,044.00 to the American Cancer Society.

“Almost everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer,” said Kate Reese, Director of Community Relations. “Campaigns like Little Falls Hospital’s Jeans for a Cause and No-shave November are ways the staff can contribute to those who are touched by cancer.”

Employees who wore jeans on Fridays made a donation of $5.00, with a portion going to the American Cancer Society. During the month of November, employees sponsored those who didn’t shave during the month to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many patients lose.
