As the time for Open Enrollment comes to a close next week, I invite you to enroll in the employee payroll deduction program to support the Healing Hand Foundation. Your donation could range from $5 to $50 per pay period and will provide financial assistance to SEARHC beneficiaries in need. The best part is that every tax deductible donation is doubled in value through a 100% match grant from the Sealaska Corporation.
Charmayne Druley and Dr. Janice Sheufelt signed up many years ago and recently asked them why they give each month. Charmayne said, "I give to the HHF because I am one who has been without before. Without a job, without money; without any assistance of any kind. I work here for SEARHC, but I am first and foremost a patient. I grew up in a part of the U.S. which did not have a Tribal Health facility, so I know first-hand the cost of medical and dental care. I give to HHF in the hopes that my small contribution will help at least one person in need of glasses, or a walker, or medical travel. I give because I care."
Dr. Sheufelt explained, "When I see patients in clinic, people often share with me the personal challenges that they or their family might be experiencing. Through my Healing Hand Foundation payroll deduction, I am happy to be able to help in a small way, to make a difference."
