In 2016, the Rockford Hospital Foundation made a special donation to Rockford Public Schools and their Children’s Hospital.
Rockford was fortunate enough to host a special Christmas dinner for the Rockfords children on January 23, the first ever Thanksgiving holiday for Rockford children.
The children of Rockford, who are in the sixth grade, received a Thanksgiving dinner that included turkey, gravy, apple pie, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, stuffing, cranberries, cranapple juice and chocolate truffles.
In addition to the turkey, the dinner included a holiday cookie, cranbread, cranfish sauce, cranly, cran-berry-apple sauce, turkey-and-cranberry-chocolate-chips and cranberry-peanut-butter-and, cran, cran.com and the Rockfield Hospital Foundation.
Rockfinesgiving.com describes Rockford as having an extremely diverse population and they were very happy to be able to share the Thanksgiving dinner with Rockford students.
In 2016 Rockford Children’s Memorial Hospital had a special dinner for its students, with a $20,000 gift that was donated by the Rockfort Children’s Hospice.
Rockfort is a children’s hospital in Rockford and is a nonprofit hospital that has helped children with a variety of medical conditions since 1884.
Since its inception in 1904, the hospital has provided medical care to over 7,000 patients, many of whom are underprivileged.
The Rockfort Memorial Hospital is currently operating with an annual operating budget of $2.2 million.
They are a non-profit organization, but their mission is to make medical care affordable and accessible to the children of our community.
RockFort Children’s hospital has received numerous accolades and awards, including being named one of the “Best Hospitals in America” by Time Magazine in 2015.
They also have a strong presence in the Rock Springs community and have created a number of programs and events for children throughout the year, including the RockFishing Festival, the Kids Food Truck Festival and the annual Rockford Christmas Festival.
With the RockFort Hospitals charitable donations to Rockfort, Rockfort’s kids have a great foundation to lean on and Rockfort Hospitals gift to Rockfoundsgiving.org provides a great way to help support the Rock Fort children in Rockfort.
Rock Fort Memorial Hospital’s website states that the donation was made to help the Rock Fountain Hospital in Rockville, Maryland, and that Rockford Memorial Hospital Foundation has donated the funds to further their charitable mission.
RockFountain Hospital Foundation also announced on their website that the Rock Fountains Thanksgiving Dinner was one of four annual fundraisers that they will host to benefit the Rocker Memorial Hospice Foundation.
The other four were the Rock Park Memorial Foundation Thanksgiving Dinner, the National Homefront Memorial Day Dinner and the New Jersey Thanksgiving Dinner.
Rock Memorial Hospital also announced that they were donating the funds from the Rock Foundation Thanksgiving Thanksgiving Dinner to RockFort Kids Foundation, RockFort Foundation’s charitable foundation that is run by Rockfort Hospital Foundation CEO, Mark Rauch.
It was announced on the Rockpark Memorial Foundation’s Facebook page that the Thanksgiving Dinner would be held on November 24, the same day that RockFort Memorial Hospital was officially opened in 1904.
The fundraising event is a great opportunity for RockFort kids to interact with other families and friends of Rockfort and meet some of the amazing people who are connected to the Rock Island community.
