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: Children’s Literacy

Thanks to the leadership of Dr. Lauren Fore, a family physician at Kirby Medical Group, and the generous support from The Foundation’s Community Outreach Fund, Kirby Medical Group offers free age-appropriate books during children’s well visits as part of the Reach Out and Read program.

Providers have shared over 300 books with young patients and their families since the start of the program in June 2022.

The generosity of our communities and Reach Out and Read is creating a brighter future for families by promoting healthy brain development, furthering language acquisition and helping families build meaningful bonds.

Be a vital part of this mission during this giving season with a gift to our Education and Community Outreach Fund.

Be part of the impact. Make a donation today!
