VMC staff “give a booster shot” to VMC Foundation

The staff of Valley Medical Center and the entire Health & Hospital System have some of the toughest jobs in healthcare.  They work long hours in challenging conditions, oftentimes for less money than they could make elsewhere.  But they stay committed to VMC, because they believe in providing healthcare to everyone, regardless of ability to pay.

And they do something more – something truly remarkable.  They donate to the VMC Foundation.  A lot.

The VMC Foundation just wrapped up our annual employee giving campaign – dubbed “Give a Booster Shot.”  Health & Hospital System employees are encouraged to make small, bi-monthly donations to the VMC Foundation that, over the course of 5 years, total $1000.  These ‘SuperBoosters” help support some of the VMC Foundation’s most essential projects.

As of this writing, 188 staff signed up for the challenge as 2012 “SuperBoosters,” joining 665 from previous campaign years.  That equals tens of thousands of dollars in support of the VMC Foundation.

The funds help the Foundation do what we do best – educate the public about the importance of Valley Medical Center, and raise additional resources for important programs, services, technology and equipment that a tight county budget cannot always afford.

And it sends an important message to our broader community of donors.  VMC staff not only work hard, but they put their money where their mouth is and give their hard-earned dollars to the VMC Foundation.

We are honored and thrilled by their support.

To say thank you, the VMC Foundation is hosting a “FREE STAFF LUNCH” for all VMC and Health and Hospital System Employees on Thursday, July 19th from 11:30 am – 2:00 p.m.  

Our apologies, but this event is not open to the general public.  Our staff deserve a special (and tasty) token of thanks all to themselves.
