Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican's medical staff is spreading humankindness this holiday season by making donations to local nonprofits that go above and beyond in supporting those in southern Nevada and serving overseas. Each hospital campus' medical staff committee chose a nonprofit and notified them of the award last week.
The donations include:
Safe Nest – $10,000 to fund holiday and scholarship activities for domestic violence victims;
Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation – $5,000 to help fund the shipping costs for 500 care packages to deployed military members in Afghanistan and Iraq this holiday season;
Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada – $5,000 to fund a full, free community meal for a day.
“Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican and its medical staff is dedicated to improving the quality of life for those in our community,” said Dr. Gary Mono, vice president for medical staff affairs for Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican. “We are very proud to announce these donations and grateful for everything these charities do for those in need every day.”
