UPDATE! March 14, 2023 — Because of colder temperatures and the potential for bad weather this weekend, as well as limited indoor space, Trinity Health System’s Employee Life Group has decided to reschedule the Craft and Vendor Sale. We will announce the new date when it has been determined. Thank you for your ongoing support of Trinity Health System and our community outreach events.
Steubenville, OH – March 9, 2023 — On Saturday, March 18, 2023, Trinity Health System’s Employee Life Group will host a Craft and Vendor Sale from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the YMCA’s side parking lot.
Jacqueline Guiddy, Infection Preventionist at Trinity Health System and member of the Employee Life Group, said this event is open to the public and emphasized that all of the vendors at the Sale are Trinity Health System employees.
“We currently have around 10 Trinity Health System employee vendors who are going to display items that they make or sell, such as wreaths, crafts, cups, pens, and decorations,” Guiddy said. “Our community knows us from the hospital, but this sale gives them the chance to connect with us in a different way, to see our passions and hobbies outside of the professional arena. I think they’ll be amazed at the talent on display.”
The Employee Life Group is a collective of Trinity Health System employees who plan events to increase employee engagement and participation in the organization.
“A couple of things that we have done recently as a team include Cookies with Santa and a Halloween Trunk or Treat for employees’ children and grandchildren,” Guiddy said. “We have other ideas that we’re developing, but mainly, we want to cultivate a positive and uplifting environment that not only supports the hospital’s mission, but makes our colleagues feel valued and important.”
In addition to the Craft and Vendor Sale, the day will feature a Chinese auction and a 50/50 raffle.
“The proceeds from the Chinese auction will go to fund our next event, which will be an Easter Egg Hunt for the children and grandchildren of our employees,” Guiddy said. “The 50/50 proceeds will benefit the Employee Assistance Fund.”
The YMCA is located at 3151 Johnson Road in Steubenville.
