Hope Starts With You

“I like to support different charities and I believe in Good Shepherd’s mission so I chose to give to the Hope Starts With You campaign.” – Stephanie Kolakowsky-Hayer, Director of Research and Clinical Outcomes.

The 2022 Employee Giving Campaign, appropriately named Hope Starts With You, runs through December 23 and features multiple ways to give and programs to support with a goal of 20% participation amongst Associates.

Gifts of any amount count toward the participation goal, and every gift makes a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.

All Associates, regardless of their participation in the campaign, will be automatically entered into a raffle to win lunch from a restaurant of their choice delivered by President & CEO Michael Spigel.

See below for a Q&A of common topics, or contact the Development Office at 610-778-1075 with any additional questions.
