Lend A Hand ~ Touch A Life at Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital
The ALMH 2010 Employee Giving Campaign, Lend A Hand ~ Touch A Life, will be held the week of Nov. 30 to Dec. 5. The 2010 goal is to raise $40,000 and increase participation over last year. You can designate your gift to the Patient Care Center or to Care ‘N Share.
Donations to the hospital ensure our patients have a comfortable environment and the equipment needed to make them well. Donations to Care ‘N Share go to fellow co-workers to make their lives somewhat easier when they face challenging financial situations.
All donations to the Patient Care Center will be matched 100 percent by the Community Memorial Foundation. This year the hospital also will partner with employees and provide a 50 percent match to each gift given to Care ‘N Share. As in the past, gifts can be made by payroll deduction (which begins January 2010) or by writing a check to the La Grange Memorial Hospital Foundation.
Pledge cards will be distributed the week of Nov. 23 through your department supervisors. By turning in your pledge card early in the week you will be eligible to win prizes. From Nov. 30 through Dec. 3 we will draw a name from the pledge cards to win a $100 gas card. On Dec. 4 the lucky winner will receive a $500 Visa gift card. For every 10 percent increase in participation from employees over last year, we will also raffle one PDO day.
