May 28, 2009
Employees of St. Vincent Healthcare’s Absarokee Medical Clinic presented a check for $845 to Project Hope. The check presentation came on Thursday April 30th to Director Mary Kuehn. Kuehn stated the funds would be used to help support the elderly and those in need in Stillwater County.
The gift comes to Project Hope through St. Vincent Healthcare’s Share Our Spirit (SOS) campaign. Each fall St. Vincent Healthcare offers its employees the opportunity to say “I gave at the Office” during the annual employee giving campaign. Absarokee Medical Clinic’s staff, surveyed the community to select a not for profit organization to receive the funds donated by employees and chose Project Hope.
St. Vincent Healthcare Foundation SOS Campaign Coordinator Susie Barbero and Campaign Co-Chair, Brenda Nagel drove from St. Vincent Healthcare in Billings to help present the check. “These St. Vincent Healthcare employees of the Absarokee Medical Clinic have certainly showed their generous spirit,” commented Barbero. “We are delighted they are directing their contribution to help provide services to individuals and families with limited means.”
During the 2008 employee giving campaign, 47% of the 2200 St. Vincent Healthcare employees chose to gift over $242,000 in support of fellow SVH employees in need and for community human service programs including the United Way of Yellowstone County.
