June 1 marks the start of the summer giving season, and it’s time to consider where your heart lives. Every year, Baptist team members make a real difference by committing real dollars to a Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation fund. Absolutely 100 percent of each donation goes to the chosen fund. Remember, donating PTO is also an option. See what a difference we made in 2016!
