As we approach the June 2nd close to our annual Employee Campaign, we continue to be touched by the tremendous support our employees are offering to raise money to put patients first and support employees. Many donors are sharing why it is important for them to contribute and we want to pass along some of their inspirational comments.
Here are some reasons donors are giving because they care:
“During the last few months of my husband’s life, we were offered a trip funded by the foundation’s Dale Fleming Fund. Although (my husband) passed away before we were able to take this trip, I am forever grateful for the generosity.”
“I’m doing my part to make our community better.”
“I want to ensure the staff and patients have what they need to give exceptional care and have an exceptional experience.”
“Community is my family.”
“I believe in the mission of the foundation and have employees who have received loans and gifts to further education, pay bills, stop eviction and get a vehicle repaired.”
“I have received tuition reimbursement and assistance from the HELP fund through the foundation. I hope I can help others in need.”
“It’s important to give back, to support the programs the foundation supports.”
“I’m paying it forward!”
“Because it is the right thing to do.”
“Because I want to help those who need it.”
“Because the network has been good to me and my family.”
“I believe in this hospital and the care we provide to our patients and community. I love the place I work and feel good about what we do!”
“I have been helped before and wish to do my part in helping when I can.”
“Community was there for me in a time of need and this is my way of giving back.”
“It’s always good to help those in need and it makes me feel good.”
Why do give? Please share why you give, and why you care.
