Blake said that CCIC received 16 holiday baskets to auction, donated by MHP departments. She said CCIC staff would like to thank everyone who donated baskets and/or placed bids in the auction. “Your generosity is truly appreciated,” Blake said. “We are so blessed to be a part of the MHP family. As a team, we are truly making healthcare personal for our community.”
