 Judy Burke
is an OC at Perkins Hall and her performance of weekend overnight would be enough to nominate her for employee of the month, but the reason for this nomination is for the time and effort she put forth to make the clients holiday special.  Judy was able to get donations of gloves and personal care items for each client.  In addition to these donated items, Judy and her grandchildren made chocolate, cookies, and bread for the clients (and the staff too!) They made up beautiful gift bags for the clients to have along with their gift from STEL.  According to Judy, this is a yearly tradition with her family to give to those who are in need.  The clients were thrilled with the gift bags and it made a difficult time of the year just a little bit easier.  Her thoughtfulness and generosity made this Christmas very special for everyone at Perkins.  Thank you, Judy, and congratulations!
