Holiday Partners

For many, the holidays mark "the most wonderful time of the year," but for those who spend the holidays away from their loved ones to take care of their health, the season can be difficult to get through. Thanks to all who spread their love and support by donating to the Holiday Partners Program, which provided gifts to those who were receiving care at Spring Harbor in December 2020.
