#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, this year’s #GivingTuesday will take place on November 27, 2018, and will kick off the giving season by inspiring people to collaborate and give back.

All #GivingTuesday donations received by CHI St. Alexius Health Carrington will benefit the Bariatric Suite project and the remaining $20,000 in funds needed to complete the $260,000 project. Currently under construction, the project is expected to be complete this December. The new suite will feature a ceiling lift for staff to safely move patients about the expanded room for care and therapies - from the bed to a wheelchair, the recliner and bathroom. Patients of higher weight levels or who are non-weight bearing will greatly benefit from the suite’s design and equipment, helping provide the best in patient care, close to home.
