12 Months of Giving Initiative: Adopt a School

By Stacey Biggs

Over the past two years, the support for our organization from the communities we serve has been nothing short of amazing. While we are always very involved in the communities we serve, we decided to find ways to go above and beyond in giving back to those who have supported T.J. Regional Health. Every month in 2022, we are doing a little extra to support local families, charities, partner organizations, students, schools, healthcare workers and more as part of our 12 Months of T.J. initiative.

In August, we will be gifting $5,000 to one school in each of the following school districts: Barren County, Glasgow Independent, and Adair County. This gift is to support educational efforts in the school. Faculty and staff, students, parents, board members, and the community members can nominate their favorite school through our website at https://www.tjregionalhealth.org/adoptaschool/.

Nominations are due by Friday, August 5, 2022. The winning school in each district will be announced by Thursday, August 11, 2022.
