Local Family Spreading Holiday Cheer to Caregivers

The Liggett family generously donates meals to family caregivers over the holidays

YUMA, AZ – December 21, 2022 — Alexis Liggett understands that even the toughest people can grow weary while caring for a loved one. She has celebrated various holidays in a hospital room, trying to make the special occasion festive, positive and as enjoyable as possible while at her son’s bedside. As someone who has benefited from the generosity of others who aimed to make the season brighter, she understands the positive impact it can have.

Reflecting on their own experiences, the Liggett family, owners of Liggett Electric, decided to recognize the love and selflessness displayed by family caregivers this holiday season. They gave a generous donation to the Foundation of Yuma Regional Medical Center to provide holiday meals for family caregivers at Yuma Regional Medical Center. Thanks to their generosity, more than 100 local families received a free Thanksgiving meal while spending the holiday supporting their loved one through an injury or illness at YRMC.

“We are thankful to the Liggett family for their generous donation,” said Jackie Woodwell, Director of the Foundation of YRMC. We appreciate the impact their giving will have on the individual recipients and our hospital.”

Recently, Liggett Electric gave another gift to provide a meal for caregivers who will spend Christmas Day and New Year's Day at the bedside of a family member or friend.

"Spending holidays and special days in the hospital is never easy, but each time we were there, we were often blessed by other’s generosity," commented Alexis Liggett. “Keeping our focus on the important and real reasons to celebrate prompted us to make this gift. We want families to know that what they do is extremely important and that we are thankful for their dedication, not just during the holidays, but every day."
