Care to Give is honored to carry forward the purpose of our organization which began in 1929. Originally known as the Red Bank Auxiliary, a group of volunteers met with the purpose of raising funds to support a hospital in Red Bank. Riverview Medical Center stands today partially as the result of the determination & hard work of those early volunteer visionaries.
In 2011 the Board of Directors voted to change the name of the Auxiliary to Care to Give. Care to Give owns & operates the Riverview gift shop. Over the decades, Care to Give has raised over 1.2 million dollars, through fund-raising events & gift shop sales, for outreach, hospital improvements & patient care.
As community leaders, dedicated professionals & loving parents, the women of Care to Give all generously share their passion & commitment to serving patients, supporting our community & fulfilling the mission of Riverview Medical Center.
“Care to Give is the bedrock of the Riverview Community. It supports our team, it supports our physicians, it seeks & supports our community’s greatest needs.” —Joseph Reichman, M.D.
Riverview & Care to Give Growing Side by Side
Riverview Women’s Auxiliary has supported the hospital and the community since the very beginning in 1929. This year, almost 90 years later, Care to Give pledged to donate $100,000 to Riverview Medical Center Foundation’s comprehensive campaign, Giving Heals, in support of the hospital’s new cancer care center. This significant pledge comes immediately after the fulfillment of a major gift contribution to Riverview Foundation’s Life.Changing. Campaign for Surgical Excellence, exemplifying Care to Give’s dedication to enhancing the health care services provided to the local community.
The Council is continually looking for new ideas and ways to serve, and welcomes ideas, support and contribution.
