Coordination and supplies for bereavement services and specialized children’s grief workshops needs $4,000 to meet this year’s costs. Will you be the community hero who steps up to keep this amazing, unfunded service available to our community? Help a family or a child work through the sometimes devastating effects of grief.
The 2016 Memorial Family of Services Employee Giving Campaign is well underway. Our “family campaign” is an employee-led opportunity for all employees to join together to advance the mission of the Memorial Family of Services.
As the office that processes incoming gifts (yes, we view donations as gifts!), The Memorial Foundation has been receiving volumes of responses from employees. Simply amazing! Ranging from one time donations to recurring payroll deductions, by giving to The Memorial Foundation employees are keeping support local to benefit the Cancer Care, Children’s Health, Compass Care and Healthy Yakima Initiatives…right here at home.
As of yet, we don’t have numbers to report; however, we can tell from the flood of responses that our team members are supportive, caring, invested in what they do, and committed to Memorial and to our community.
Thank you Memorial Family of Services employees!
