Phoenix Home Care & Hospice takes an active role in the communities where we serve. From Springfield to Wichita and O’Fallon to Overland Park, our staff takes pride in the volunteer opportunities in every city where Phoenix has a presence. In today’s blog from Phoenix Home Care, we talk about why we feel drawn to philanthropic endeavors as part of our mission statement and who we’ve helped over the years.
Isaiah 61:3 talks about how we should be hopeful of the future. Philanthropy, as part of Christ’s mission, is one of the hallmarks of Phoenix Home Care & Hospice. Not only do we give money to organizations, but we also encourage our employees to volunteer.
The Rainbow Network
In 2014 and 2015, Phoenix Home Care and Hospice gave $5,200 to the Rainbow Network based in Springfield, Missouri. 29 employees at 13 offices in three states helped raise money. Phoenix’s leadership matched all the money raised by employees. The Rainbow Network helps people in Nicaragua who live in extreme poverty by providing feeding centers, healthcare, education, and housing programs.
A team of Phoenix Home Health Care & Hospice employees will participate in Wichita Walk, the city’s annual event held in conjunction with other walks around the United States. The walk raises money to find a cure for ALS, a debilitating disease that affects the nervous system. The team’s goal is $2,500.
March for Babies
In 2015, Phoenix donated $5,000 to the March for Babies. One of Phoenix’s officers, Gwen Beebe, served as chairwoman for the event. March for Babies is a step up from the March of Dimes. Funding from the organization goes to healthy babies and secure moms as they bring their bundle of joy into the world.
Other Nonprofit Organizations
Over the years, Phoenix Home Care has supported the Good Samaritan Boys Ranch, the Alzheimer’s Association, In Time of Need Foundation, American Heart Association, Senior Foundation of the Ozarks, as well as Lost and Found Grief Center.
In fact, Phoenix makes it a point to have goal-driven philanthropic efforts every year. Giving is in our nature, and we plan for it on an annual basis. Once leadership outlines our plans, employees can participate in fundraising as much as they want.
