In 2006 after the loss of one of Gerhard's employees, Linda Duffy, we were given the opportunity to contribute to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. This opportunity turned into tradition, one gladly carried on by Gerhard's employees to this day. Linda battled her cancer bravely over a year and a half in CHOP. While there during the holiday season, the entire children's cancer wing received gifts including Linda, a gesture that brought a little holiday cheer into the lives of the courageous children there.
At the request of Linda's parents, the following year Gerhard's was lucky enough to provide their own presents for the children whom were hospitalized during the holidays. A small gesture made by both the Gerhard family and employees in hope of bringing a smile to the children's faces that year!
This year, 2017, Gerhard's hopes you will join us in our donation to this incredibly worth cause. The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is world-renown, leading research breakthroughs and medical innovations for more than 90 years. The amount of lives saved by CHOP here in very our city is countless. Please join us in supporting CHOP and bringing Christmas joy to some little one's who's names will sure be at the top of the Nice List this year.
