Smiles From Jamie


"Smiles From Jamie" is a program the Girard Medical Center Foundation created to honor Jamie Rebecca Hallacy who passed away in 2011.  The mission of the Smiles from Jamie fund is to provide children’s activity items such as books, puzzles, games and/or videos available for the child’s use while they are a patient at the Girard Medical Center.  Additional items may be sent home permanently for the child’s enjoyment. 

Gifts to the Smiles from Jamie fund directly support the patients and programs at Girard Medical Center.  A tax-deductible gift may take many forms from single purpose gifts, memorials, honor gifts, or planned gifts made through the Girard Medical Center Foundation. For more information regarding the Fund or if you are interested in making an in kind contribution, please contact Claudia Ausemus (causemus@ckt.net).

Smiles From Jamie thanks and greatly appreciates ALL the donors - including the Haderlein and Girard Middle School students who donated their money from their penny competition to pay for the "The Tree" mural.  Also appreciated are the blankets and activity packets donated by the Beulah Church ladies!
