The continued dedication and support of McLeod Employees is vitally important to the McLeod Health Foundation. The largest group of donors to the Foundation, McLeod Employees have raised more than $11 million through the Annual Employee Campaign since the Foundation was established in 1986.
In 2018, McLeod Employees raised $1,506,242, demonstrating how dedicated they are to serving patients in ways beyond their job description. This amount represents more than 3,500 employees who participated in the annual campaign to raise funds to support the programs and services of McLeod Health.
“The participation of our employees greatly enhances the outstanding level of care for which McLeod Health is known,” said Jill Bramblett, Executive Director. “Their donations reflect how much our McLeod family believes in and supports the mission of the McLeod Foundation.”
The importance of this support is evident in the McLeod Cancer Center, McLeod Hospice, McLeod Children’s Hospital, McLeod Diabetes Center, and many other programs that the Foundation funds to care for the well-being of people living in the 15-county region McLeod Health serves.
To wrap up the Annual Employee Campaign, the McLeod Foundation recently honored those individuals who inspired participation in the 2018 campaign.
The Foundation also presented the Spirit of Giving award to Emergency Services at McLeod Regional Medical Center for increasing their participation, involvement and monies raised for the Employee Campaign. In addition, the McLeod Regional Environmental Services Team received the Inspiration Award for going above and beyond in their support of the Foundation from assistance with events to funds raised by their staff members.
