Care to Give
A Legacy of Service to Riverview Medical Center
For over 90 years a diverse group of women from Red Bank and the surrounding towns have come together to serve the community of Riverview Medical Center. They are community leaders, executives, dedicated professionals and parents who share a passion and commitment to supporting the community and fulfilling the hospital’s mission.
Formerly known as the Riverview Medical Center Auxiliary, the group rebranded as Care to Give in 2010. Despite the change in name, the organization’s commitment to bolster patients’ spirits, raise funds for a variety of health issues and provide awareness remains the same. Year after year they provide dignity, resources, in kind services, and support to those who possess the greatest need.
Since its establishment in 1929, Care to Give has raised more than $2 million, which has funded everything from items to provide physical and emotional comfort of patients awaiting diagnostic treatment, to providing family risk assessments, clinical trials, diagnostic imaging and diagnosis, breast MRI and ultrasound, digital mammography and various other screenings, and even vouchers through the Paint the Town Pink Fund to provide services through Riverview’s Women’s Center and education and outreach to the local community.
Through donations, profits from its gift shop and annual signature events, Care to Give’s philanthropy has benefitted the Jane H. Booker Women’s Center, Life Changing Campaign for Surgical Excellence, the Paint the Town Pink Fund, as well as oncology services. In addition to raising funds, the organization recognizes and honors well-deserved individuals who have made a substantial impact in the healthcare community.
