Employees Give to Red Lodge Community Boys and Girls Club of Carbon County Receives Check
May 28, 2009
Employees of St. Vincent Healthcare’s Mountain View Clinic, in Red Lodge, presented a check for $967 to Boys and Girls Club of Carbon County. The check presentation came on Thursday, April 30th to Jody Ackerman, Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club.
Ms. Ackerman’s response to this gift, “Thank you so much for your kind consideration of supporting the Boys and Girls Club of Carbon County! Your donation is greatly appreciated.”
This gift comes to the Boys and Girls Club 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. Mountain View Clinic Manager, Mary Beth Noe and Cindy Carlson, Mountain View Clinic’s SOS Ambassador, surveyed the community to select a not for profit organization and chose the Boys and Girls Club to receive the funds donated by employees.
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 Mountain View Medical Clinic have certainly showed their generous spirit,” commented Barbero. “We are delighted they are directing their contributions to help fund children’s programs through the Boys and Girls Club.”
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 during the 2008 employee giving campaign.
