Working at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) during this time of year is incredibly gratifying. In the past few weeks I have heard literally dozens of stories about groups of employees coming together to raise money for charities; conduct drives for food, toys and books; work to help the homeless; and “adopt” families to ensure that children being treated at the hospital and their parents have an enjoyable holiday.
