Thank You St. Vincent Associates for Sharing Your Spirit!
Since its inception, the Share Our Spirit Campaign has raised over $4 million in the spirit of the mission of our founders, the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, to provide compassionate care to all, especially to those who are poor or vulnerable.
Employees' gifts benefit the following funds held at St. Vincent Healthcare Foundation:
Community Crisis/Children’s Programs Fund benefits programs and organizations helping strengthen and support healthy families in our community like Young Families Head Start, Friendship House and Habitat for Humanity. Focusing on programs for poor and vulnerable children such as Boys and Girls Clubs, CASA, School District 2’s Angel and Homeless Children’s program are funded to help area children with their basic needs, education, health and recreation.
Tawnya Catron Castle Rock Middle School 8th Grade Counselor identified some students that needed help with basic needs. She established the Castle Rock Middle School Pantry and began supplying it with donated food, clothing, personal care items and school supplies. She found the need to be greater than anticipated. SOS Leadership Team members Susie Barbero, Heidi Saunders, Louise Jensen and Bret Miller delivered a very nice SOS Community and Children's Fund gift to help Castle Rock Pantry purchase needed items.
Rural Options Funds works with SVH rural clinics’ staff in Absarokee, Cody, WY, Hardin, Laurel and Red Lodge to choose a charity in their respective community to benefit from their gifts each year.
Patient Compassion Fund covers vouchers for patient’s family members for meals, lodging and cab fare so they can remain close to a loved one in the hospital. Patient Compassion also helps patients without means purchase minor medical equipment or prescriptions so they may heal at home.
Associate Assistance Fund assists fellow SVH employees who find themselves in crisis needing financial assistance. United Way of Yellowstone County also receives support.
