Columbia – The Maury Regional Health Care Foundation has provided more than $1 million in financial assistance through its programs and services since it was founded in 2006, according to Executive Director Joe Kilgore.
“It is through the generosity of our donors that we are able to make a difference in the lives of others,” said Kilgore.
One of the Foundation’s most generous donors over the years has been Jeremy Britt, owner of The Scrub Shop in Columbia. Since 2010, the Foundation has received more than $41,000 in commissions from the scrub sales held at the medical center.
“We are grateful to Jeremy for his continued support of the Foundation and those we serve. Every dollar of these donations are placed into a fund to benefit those less fortunate because the administrative costs of operating the Foundation are absorbed by Maury Regional Medical Center,” said Kilgore.
The Maury Regional Health Care Foundation assists Maury Regional Medical Center and its affiliates in expanding health care services and community outreach programs in a variety of ways. Among the many other projects supported by the Foundation are The Retreat, a hospitality house for families of cancer patients receiving long-term treatment at Maury Regional’s Cancer Center, the Women’s Center Wigs & Camisoles Program and dozens of other outreaches to improve the lives of individuals and families in southern Middle Tennessee.
“The Maury Regional Foundation does so many wonderful things for our community and we couldn’t be more pleased to support their efforts,” said Jeremy Britt. “To help people in their time of need is what being a good community means and the Foundation does a great job of that. We are very proud to have a small part in that.”
The Maury Regional Health Care Foundation was established in October 2006. Financial support received through the foundation is used for projects including community health initiatives, education scholarships, and other health-related projects. The foundation is designated as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and donations are tax-deductible. Gifts may be made in honor or in memory of an individual and may be donated to one of several funds. For more information about the Maury
