One Heart Spring 2013 Newsletter and Donor Honor Roll

 

 

The One Heart Campaign is the system-wide employee giving effort of the Sisters of Charity Health System (SCHS). This campaign, which began in 2012, aims to raise both money and awareness for the needs of our hospitals and ministries from the 8,000+ employees in the SCHS family.

The Spring 2013 One Heart Newsletter posted below contains a special message from Sister Judith Ann Karam, CSA, an honor roll of current employee donors, and information on how you can still participate in the inaugural One Heart Campaign if you haven’t already.
