Case Management Week

Case Management Week is October 10-16th,  there are 2 opportunities to participate:

  • Goodie Bags for hospital staff – items are donated by local providers and anyone can participate
  • Provide Lunch for a hospital team – open to Retirement Connection sponsors only at this time

1) Include your items in the Goody Bags:

Retirement Connection team works with local providers, to provide  “Thank you bags” to hospital case managers during Case Management Week, October 10-16th. We plan to drop off more than 1000 Thank You bags to case management staff at 40 hospitals from Everett, WA to Medford, OR. More than 100 providers in several cities donated items valued less than $10/each to recognize the hard work of local case managers.

More details about provider donated items: On the sign up form, we have noted participating hospitals and the staff amount providers should plan for. If a hospital has 50 staff members- you will provide 50 items for that hospital. You can participate in as many hospitals as you like. Ideas include: hand written notes, quality logo products, $5 Starbucks cards, Kind bars, other snacks, etc. Each hospital needs to be boxed separately when you bring your items to the drop location (do NOT NOT NOT deliver to the hospital). All items for each hospital will be combined in individual goodie bags for each case manager to receive during case management week.

A few things to note:
* NO PERISHABLE / NO HOMEMADE FOOD, food items must be store bought and individually wrapped
* NO GLASS OR FRAGILE ITEMS, the bags will be moved several times, and your items may be broken
* If including multiple small items – please bag them together (ex. tea, lotion, and a face mask from same provider should be placed in a single bag. This helps us keep all your items together.)
* Snacks are very popular – consider placing your label on a bag and include a few kind bars, a card, and beverage with no glass.
* Be mindful of dated items, please note that these bags are delivered the week of Oct. 11th
* If you are including branded logo items – be mindful of the audience and purpose of these bags.

Remember: These goodie bags are a Thank You gift to case managers, and different from items distributed at an expo table. It would be better to donate a simple Kind Bar with your label, rather than marketing brochures and pens. Great Logo items have been: phone chargers, sewing kits, Ice packs, travel mugs filled with items, aromatherapy lotion, or other nice items we KEEP.
