“We give…” Employees Donate to Support Health System

During November 2013, Washington Health System employees personally donated over $109,000 to the Health System to support programs and projects that help patients have quality health care right here in our community.

 

$15,000 of that will go to an Emergency Assistance Fund to help co-workers.

 

This year’s campaign started with an employee Chili Cook Off. Take a look at the photos in our Photo Gallery.

 

Calling All Volunteers for Spring Hospice Care Phonathon

Hospice Care needs your help this Spring.  Every year, we hold a Spring Phonathon fundraiser, to ask past donors and family members to support current and future hospice patients.  We can’t talk with these friends of Hospice Care without volunteers, people just like you.

 

Each night, we need 20 volunteers to call our donors and explain how we need their continued support.  The Phonathon will be held on the following nights:

  • Thursday, March 13
  • Tuesday, March 18 – Reserved by Calvary United Methodist Church
  • Wednesday, March 19
  • Thursday, March 20

We’ll provide a free dinner at 5:30, and then our Foundation staff will give you an easy to read script and explain everything that you need to know to make successful phone calls.  Calling will be from 6:00-8:30. 

 

For more information or to sign up, please contact the Foundation office at (724) 223-3875 or foundation@whs.org.
