Philanthropy Day

11/15/2018 - 7:30 am


November 15th is an important day around the Nation as the annual Philanthropy Day celebration is observed. Philanthropy Day is also an important day for RiverView Health and the RiverView Foundation. It is an opportunity to share the good news of the meaningful services RiverView provides to its community and thank the donors that help make these services available.

Tune in to KROX radio 1260 AM or 105.7 FM from 7:30 am to 12:30 pm that day to listen to heartwarming stories about the difference RiverView Health has made in the lives of so many of its patients and employees. About 20 live radio interviews are done from RiverView’s main lobby each year on Philanthropy Day to share experiences and testimonials regarding the quality healthcare patients receive at RiverView Health.

The annual Philanthropy Day event also includes a free community health fair that morning from 9 am to noon. The public is invited to partake in free wellness information on RiverView services as well as have several screenings done for free.

Refreshments will be available. The health fair will take place in Heritage Hallway on Crookston’s campus at 323 South Minnesota Street. Attendees are asked to enter the building through the main lobby on the south side of the facility. 

“Our gratitude is never-ending and we pledge to continue to work hard to make a difference in the lives of our patients and the ones they love,’’ shared RiverView Foundation Director Kent Bruun. “From the provision of basic comfort items to complex technology, donor support continues to make an important difference at RiverView.’’
