2020 Employee Giving Campaign
On May 4-15, every OakBend team member is invited to join the annual giving campaign by making a personal gift. Your gift of any amount will make a difference.
The employee giving campaign is a powerful opportunity for you to be a part of a patient’s healing process and brings us closer to our vision of being the best community healthcare organization.
Since 2017, more than 700 OakBend employees have committed almost $357,000 through the Seeds of Generosity initiative. The generosity of our employees has inspired giving from others in the community and helped us achieve significant milestones.
Gifts from the first three employee giving campaigns went towards OakBend’s Vision2020 campaign and were used to renovate the 4th and 5th floors and for improvements to common spaces on the first floor of our Jackson Street campus, including recent updates to the elevators.
This year’s Seeds of Generosity campaign will benefit OakBend’s surgery department. Funds raised will be used for new equipment and other upgrades in the department.
