ANDREW H. CAMPBELL MEMORIAL SPORTING CLAYS TOURNAMENT
Friends and family members of the Campbell family joined together with other Trinitas philanthropists on Thursday, June 22nd at the Hudson Farm Club in Andover, NJ, for a day of sport, remembrance, and charity. Held annually in memory of Andrew H. Campbell, a longtime supporter and board chairman of Trinitas, this year’s shoot netted over $48,000.
When Mr. Campbell passed away, the Campbell family felt the best way to honor his memory was to establish an endowment in his name that would continue his legacy for the cause he loved the most—the people of Trinitas Regional Medical Center and the communities they serve. The Andrew H. Campbell Memorial Endowment benefits the Trinitas Cancer Center, the Trinitas Pallia-tive Care Program and the Trinitas Nursing Scholarship Program. Funds raised for the Endowment at the AHC Memorial Sporting Clays Tournament directly support these important programs.
If you would like additional information about this or starting your own endowment to remember a loved one, please contact Nadine Brechner or Joanne McGann at 908-994-8249.
BANK OF AMERICA MAKES
The Trinitas Health Foundation received a $20,000 grant from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. The grant will support the Health Careers Exploration Program, a constructive and aspirational after-school and summer initiative that mentors students on achievable career options, teaching them the importance of volunteerism and motivating them to stay in school. The program includes: Summer Nursing Bootcamp, Medical Mentorships, Trinitas Teen Volunteer Program and Career Track & Certification Program. By offering career guidance and hands-on career exploration opportunities, our program has unlocked valuable economic opportunities for thousands of students from the greater Union County region, almost all of whom are from Elizabeth and from low-income families. Special thank you to Bank of America for its continued support and partnership. Summer Nursing Camp is a six-week program for Union County high school students contemplating a nursing career. This program has grown significantly and now serves 72 to 75 students per year. Last year a Bank of America representative came in and spoke with the students regarding finance topics.
THE PROVIDENT BANK FOUNDATION ASSISTS MEDICAL TRAINING AT TRINITAS REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER
Members of The Provident Bank Foundation team, along with a representative from Provident Bank, were on hand at Trinitas Regional Medical Center recently to present a check in the amount of $24,000 to purchase a “SimMan” Advanced Life Support Mannequin. The life-like mannequin simulates human functions and responses, and serves as a bridge between classroom learning and clinical experiences for emergency medical technicians (EMTs), firefighters and paramedics undergoing training at Trinitas. With the addition of this equipment, Trinitas expects to train up to 530 students annually. Joseph McTernan (second from left), Senior Director/Community & Clinical Services at Trinitas, gratefully accepted the check from (left to right) Karen McMullen, Board member-The Provident Bank Foundation; Jane Kurek, Executive Director, The Provident Bank Foundation; and Michael Kahn, VP/Market Manager, Provident Bank.
