High Point Medical Center Employees Gave Strong! Employees Raise More Than $143,800
HIGH POINT, N.C. -The employees at High Point Medical Center raised more than $143,800 to complete the fourth annual employee giving campaign, with a theme of Give Strong! Change Lives.
"Once again, our employees have exceeded our expectations," said Denise Potter, Vice President, Foundation/Public Relations and Marketing. "They joined hands with the community in support of this hospital and our patient care programs showing that together, we can make a difference! We are proud of the increase in participation and contributions this year."
More than 750 employees gave with gifts ranging from $1 to more than $2,500. The number of employees who donated to the 2013 campaign is nearly a five percent increase from the 2012 employee giving campaign. These employees also donated 13 percent more money than last year's campaign.
Since the initial Employee Giving Campaign in 2010 High Point Medical Center employees have donated over $500,000!
Employee donations will be distributed to five different beneficiaries: area of greatest need, patient special needs, charity mammogram fund, diabetes patient scholarship fund and Project C.A.R.E. Employees are given the option of designating where they would like their gift to go.
The "area of greatest need" provides financial support to important patient care programs, services and technology that have the greatest need in the hospital. "Patient special needs" helps High Point Medical Center patients who are in a crisis situation and have an immediate need for support. For example, this may include providing clothing for discharge, meals and/or other special needs. The charity mammogram fund provides critically needed screening and diagnostic mammograms to uninsured and underinsured women from the community. The diabetes patient scholarship fund provides educational services to uninsured diabetic patients who would otherwise be unable to participate in this health care service at the Diabetes Self-Care Management Center. "Project C.A.R.E." assists employees who experience a catastrophic emergency.
