You can find them ringing bells outside of local stores, shopping for families in need or collecting toys for children. Throughout Northwest Georgia, Harbin Clinic providers and employees have embraced the concept of caring completely for the community by giving back with time, effort and donations.
“The holiday season is always a great time for us to be thankful for all of the blessings we have,” Harbin Clinic CEO Kenna Stock says. “We know there are people in our community less fortunate, and each year our employees give back to help those in need.”
During Thanksgiving, Family Medicine Cedartown and Family Medicine and Pediatrics Adairsville provided local families in need with boxes of food. Dialysis Rome had several employees participate in the annual Love Feast in Rome as well.
As Christmas approached, Harbin Clinic offices throughout Northwest Georgia found ways to help give back to the community.
Multi-Specialty, General Surgery and Cardiology in Cartersville all chose to help provide for families or children in need during the holidays, by donating food, clothing and toys.
Family Medicine Calhoun sent Christmas cards to military personnel.
In Rome, the Business Office, Radiation Oncology, Singh Internal Medicine and the Echo, Nuclear, Vascular Labs along with Vascular Surgery all collected food, toys, clothing and more to help children, families and the elderly.
Multiple Harbin Clinic locations also played host to a Toys for Tots drive.
More than 40 Harbin Clinic physicians and employees participated as bell ringers to help raise funds for the Salvation Army last weekend. The group’s ringing, dancing and holiday cheer helped fill two red kettles full of donations.
Harbin Clinic also celebrated its many volunteers with the annual volunteer brunch in early December. The event featured volunteers wearing festive outfits.
Each year, Harbin Clinic donates money to more than 50 charities in honor of the 9,000 hours served by our more than 90 volunteers.
