A gift of pies at SVMC
BENNINGTON — James Martinez, left, of Tri State Area Federal Credit Union, participated in the Thanksgiving Pie Sale at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center's Putnam Cafe on Tuesday by purchasing 100 pies to be offered free to the first 100 Cafe visitors. He is pictured with Tiffany Tobin, SVMC's director of hospitality services.
"I appreciate the fact that this hospital is in the community, and this hospital is nothing without the employees," Martinez said. "It really is a thank you for everything they do for the community."
"First of all, I was blown away. Never have we had such a thing happen in the cafe," Tobin said. "We are grateful to Jim for his extraordinary appreciation for our employees. We hope that it will set the tone for the holiday season and that people will pay his generosity forward."
