Lourdes Employees Lend Support to Foundation

Paducah, KY (November 11, 2016) – More than 275 Lourdes employees pledged to support Lourdes Foundation’s annual employee giving drive to benefit patients, co-workers, programs and patient care projects at Lourdes.  The fund drive, dubbed the Harvest of Healing Campaign, raised over
$97, 000 through donations of payroll deductions, cash gifts and unused vacation time. 

Funds raised during the Harvest of Healing Campaign are used to meet critical needs for hundreds of indigent patients who cannot afford medication, a cab ride home, or other needed medical equipment.  This year alone, over 450 patients have received help with these basic needs.    Many other programs like women’s services, heart and vascular care and Lourdes Hospice are also supported through this effort.  

“The quality care that Lourdes employees deliver makes it possible to extend our healthcare ministry to the entire region,” says Jessica Toren, Lourdes Foundation Interim President. “We are grateful for the personal choice they have made to help provide an essential safety net for people who come to us in need of compassionate and quality care, regardless of their ability to pay.”
