Since 2010, the Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park has made a commitment to at-risk youth in the Highland Park Hospital service area by funding mentoring matches through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago (BBBSMC). This year the Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park awarded BBBSMC a $60,000 grant to support health themed activities and programming to more than 280 youth near the Highland Park Hospital. These programs and activities focus on health education, nutrition education and healthy lifestyle activities.
The Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park takes their commitment in supporting BBBSMC youth even further by inviting mentoring matches to the Highland Park Hospital for in-depth tours. Last year matches got an exclusive tour of the Highland Park Hospital where they learned about CPR, First Aid and simulated multiple operations. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago’s CEO, Art Mollenhauer, understands the importance of foundations who are committed to serving at-risk youth at every level.
Art said, “The Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park is more than a funder. They have opened their doors by teaching our Littles practical and useful ways to live a healthier life. This foundation truly gives their time and money to making a difference in their neighborhood.”
The matches who are supported in the Highland Park service area have an exciting year ahead of them that includes field trips from sporting events to cooking classes and many more in between. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago is proud to partner with the Healthcare Foundation of Highland Park and looks forward to many more years of growth and impact in the north suburbs.
