Each year, the Agnesian HealthCare Foundation reaches out during its annual giving campaign to ask for assistance in support of the Foundation’s efforts on behalf of Agnesian HealthCare. The outreach extends far beyond the walls of the hospitals and into our communities. Thanks to your generosity, we have made countless contributions to the overall health and well-being of friends, family and neighbors.
The Agnesian HealthCare Foundation is interested in helping parents to set their children up for success in school and life. That’s why we’re focusing our 2015 Annual Appeal drive (under Unrestricted Funds) to help fund a program where Agnesian HealthCare physicians prescribe books and encourage families to read together. At wellness checks for children six months to five years, the physician shares a brand-new, age-appropriate book with the child and talks with the family about reading together.
Jack Twohig, president of Jack Twohig’s Carpet One, shares why he gives to the Foundation’s annual giving campaign.
"52 years ago I was brought to St. Agnes Hospital with life-threatening injuries and multiple major fractures. For three months, I was under the watchful eye of caring providers. Today, feeling very blessed, I live a full and active life. St. Agnes Hospital was there when I needed them, and it only seems right to pay it forward. We donate generously to the Agnesian HealthCare Foundation through our volunteer hours and financial support. We give when we can because it’s the right thing to do and it feels good to give."
