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: Wellness Trail Extension

Dick and Ann Skagenberg Estate Gift

Thanks to the generous estate gift from Dick and Ann Skagenberg, six-tenths of a mile was added to our Wellness Trail, providing an additional 10-foot wide concrete path around the Villas of Hollybrook and our new Therapy and Wellness Center.

“We believe that funding the expansion of the Wellness Trail is a fitting tribute to the Skagenberg’s legacy – and showcases their commitment to the hospital’s mission and the communities we serve,” says Luke Feeney, chair of The Foundation Board of Directors.

All donations advance the healthcare Kirby provides to our communities. This holiday season, join us in bettering the lives of your friends and neighbors by making a charitable gift to The Kirby Foundation.

Be part of the impact. Make a donation today!
