ALBANY — Phoebe Family members set a new record during this year’s May is for Miracles campaign. Across the health system, employees raised $16,911 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH). “Our employees did an amazing job engaging friends, family, and local businesses to raise money. I am so proud of the enthusiasm and generosity all our employees showed for this campaign helping our local infants and kids,” said Becca Miller, CMNH coordinator.
Last month, over 40 departments across the health system sold iconic balloons to friends and family for $1 and made creative displays with the balloons in their departments. In Albany, the NICU raised the most money while Information Systems won the best display award. At Phoebe Worth, Materials Management, Environmental Services and Plant Operations won the fundraising award and Rehabilitation had the best display. And, in Americus at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center, Patient Treatment Modality raised the most money.
All of the money raised stays in Southwest Georgia to help medical professionals treat local children. Since 1997, CMNH supporters have raised more than $4.5 million to provide specialized equipment and programs to help babies and children treated at Phoebe.
Community members can also help support CMNH by purchasing Miracle Balloons at local sponsor locations. Currently, Miracle Balloons can be purchased at Dairy Queen through Aug. 2.
