The San Luis Valley Health Foundation was the proud recipient of hundreds of pairs of socks that were collected recently by the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League during its recent in-service event. The socks will be distributed between San Luis Valley Regional Medical Center in Alamosa and Conejos County Hospital in La Jara.

“This was an amazing surprise, and we are honored that they thought of our hospitals when collecting these socks,” said Kelly Gurule, director of the San Luis Valley Health Foundation. “Anything to make a patient’s stay better is very much appreciated.”
