The St. Tammany Hospital Guild has announced a donation of $50,000 to St. Tammany Hospital Foundation as their annual donation in 2017. The funds were generated through the sales from the hospital gift shop staffed by volunteers. This is the largest donation made by the Guild since it was founded in 2003.
The Guild also raises funds through bake sales and jewelry sales to offer educational scholarships for hospital employees.
The foundation then uses the funds “in support of programs, projects and equipment for St. Tammany Parish Hospital,” said Nicole Suhre, executive director of St. Tammany Hospital Foundation. “
If you are interested in volunteering just four or more hours per week, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Shirley Primes for the hospital, Parenting Center and hospice at 985-898-4008.
