Holiday Cheer Day 9: Thanking Veterans to #SpreadCheer

Published by , on Dec 10, 2013

Thanking Veterans Missing Home for HolidaysToday is the ninth day on our countdown of the 12 Days of Holiday Cheer and we have a maintenance staff member with a huge heart helping us celebrate!Buddy Satterwhite, maintenance supervisor at VCU Medical Center, is no stranger to serving others. According to Buddy, the best part of his job is getting to take care of nurses and staff so they can focus on their patients. So, it came as no surprise when Buddy was named employee of the month, but how he reacted shocked everyone. Rather than inviting a few of his colleagues to the usual celebratory dinner, Buddy asked that his reward be an ice cream party for the pediatric patients. Buddy is someone who always puts others first, just like his son who serves as a U.S. marine. Buddy’s 6-word message of cheer is, “Thanking veterans missing home for holidays!”Do you want to #SpreadCheer by honoring someone you love this season?
