A pie giveaway at the Hudson Valley Hospital Center is a holiday tradition….
Cortlandt Manor, NY – November 21, 2012 – Apple outpaced Pumpkin again this year at Hudson Valley Hospital Center where 1,150 Hospital employees received free pumpkin or apple pies the day before Thanksgiving. Each year the number of pies purchased increases based on the number of employees. This year alone, HVHC added 100 new employees.
Continuing a 17-year tradition, the Hospital’s administration personally handed out the pies to staff during an open house from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the Wagner Conference Room.
The pies, baked by Homestyle Bakery in Peekskill, were stacked high in the conference room and employees stopped in to pick up their pies, have a cup of coffee and chat with administration throughout the day.
“It’s a great tradition,’’ said Federspiel. “People bring their children and other family members in and drop by to say hello. It’s a great way to start the holidays.’’
