Great Northern’s Target Team had the honor of participating in the Gillette Children’s Hospital Winter Wonderland event on December 13th. Our team assisted with the event by getting product ready, scheduling shipment, and attending the setup. They had fun building trees, wreaths, and décor used to decorate the hospital for the event. The hospital and patients were overjoyed by the décor throughout the building and the children loved having the trees and wreaths in their rooms. Thank you to our incredible team and all the long hours they put in to help make this event possible!
