Transformation in progress: We Care & We Share

Your gift to the We Care & We Share 2016 Employee Campaign helps set in motion events that transcend the physical.

“I can’t begin to find the words to express how grateful we are
for the care you have provided to my family,” wrote Maureen, the daughter of a patient at St. Anthony’s at de Greeff Hospice House.
“It was a blessing that she chose such a comforting place to complete her journey…The staff will be forever etched in my mind and heart for their kindness over the past several months.”

Your contribution to the Hospice Fund allow hospice caregivers to provide more patients with the homelike care that they richly deserve as they near the end of their life’s journey. It also funds supportive programs to surviving family members, such as long-term pastoral care and bereavement counseling for individuals and families.

Also last year, your charitable contributions helped the Family Birth Center Fund provide advanced education for fetal monitoring.  This year, the needs include an external monitoring system for $18,000 and a Panda Warmer for $20,000. 

The wireless system will allow birthing moms to move about freely in the room, and will provide more reliable monitoring of the fetal heart rate. Upgrading the Family Birth Center’s aged warmers to the Panda system would provide an updated, more efficient and effective device to stabilize infants being admitted to the Special Care Nursery.

Please consider devoting your pledge to the area of greatest need. 

Turn your pledge forms into your ambassador by Nov. 4, or drop them in the Human Resources box by the ATM or at the HR office. Remember, your gift includes you in a drawing for prizes, including gift cards and ETO days.
