Giving Tuesday: Be Someone’s Hero

November 29th, 2016

Southern Illinois truly looks out for its own. It’s Giving Tuesday, symbolically set for November 29th each year to usher in the holiday season. Consider a one-time, annual, or monthly gift to the SIH Foundation in support of our many community support funds.

Here’s a snapshot of the need among friends and families in our region:

  • The SIH Foundation’s Patient-Community Support Funds have helped 13,271 patients with costs not covered by insurance
  • The SIH Cancer Institute treated 1,039 new patients since opening its doors in the spring of 2015
  • Herrin Hospital is set to exceed its goal by performing over 1,710 surgeries in 2016

Indeed, you have the power to change a life. Monetary gifts are tax-deductible. Reach out to SIH Director of Fund Development Tanna Morgan at (618) 457-5200 extension 67843 or click here to set up online giving.
