Make Spirits Bright – Give the Gift of Caring this Holiday Season

In celebration of the most wonderful time of year, the Kirby Foundation is kicking off a 12 Days of Giving campaign to raise awareness about the impact you can make with a donation to the Foundation.

We are grateful to our community for their willingness to support us in our mission to further community health resources and medical campus improvements.

Donation Spotlight: Paint Piatt Pink

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported Paint Piatt Pink and helped us raise over $15,000 — a new record for this annual effort to help those impacted by breast cancer. A special shout-out to our local community partners for generously supporting this fundraising campaign: Caitlin Hicks Design, Jennifer Lieb of Lively Aesthetics, Vinyl by Meredith, Soy&Lee Clothing Boutique, Moon Bean Coffee, Monticello High School Pep Club and the State Bank of Bement.

“We’re incredibly grateful for the difference those supporting Paint Piatt Pink make in the lives of those facing this tough disease,” said Jennifer Moss, Chief Clinical Officer. “Your generosity allows us to continue providing Hope Totes to breast cancer patients living in Piatt County and comfort care items to those receiving treatments in our Chemotherapy Department.”

Funds raised during this year’s Paint Piatt Pink campaign are also supporting the purchase of Bella Blankets for our Imaging Department. These protective coverlets are placed on our mammography machine for EVERY patient and offer improved comfort, enhanced positioning for our technologists and provide additional sanitary protection.

“The Bella Blankets are a wonderful enhancement to patient care and help encourage mammograms for annual screening.” added Moss.
