Why I Give: "Example Of The Best a Small Community Hospital Can Be"

“I first began to support the Foundation after my mother, Mary Parkes, died in the Deep River Hospital in November 2012.  I have donated every year since then for three reasons:  in memory of my mother; to thank the hospital for the incredibly compassionate care she received in her final days; and to help ensure that this level of support continues to be available to grieving families.  The Deep River Hospital is a stellar example of the best a small community hospital can be, and I will be forever grateful for the home it gave my family in our time of need.”

For #GivingTuesday 2022, we are celebrating with "Why I Give" stories from members of the community! Donors, volunteers, and supporters were asked: "Why do you support DRDH?" and the replies we received were inspiring and motivating.
