Prompted by Capella’s offer to match funds donated to The Care Fund and other disaster relief organizations, employees of Saint Mary’s Regional Health System and Millard-Henry Clinic, popped pounds of popcorn and baked mounds of cookies, cakes and other delicious treats to help raise money for disaster victims in seven southern states.
In total staff donated $3,206.10, the highest dollar amount of any Capella hospital. Of that amount, $2,181.75 went to the local American Red Cross. Together with the Capella corporate office, sister hospitals and Capella’s match of $14,156.10 total contributions exceeded $28,000.
CEO Mike McCoy praised the staff saying, “I am always amazed with the amount of kindness shown by our staff to help others in need. I’m very proud to work with such an outstanding team of caring individuals.”
