Smith’s Gives St. Rose Dominican Hospitals A $130,000 Gift

St. Rose Dominican Hospitals’ Children’s Miracle Network received an early Thanksgiving gift this year from Smith’s Food & Drug Stores – a check for $130,000. This incredibly generous donation will assist families who are struggling to pay for their child’s medical costs after trauma or serious illness.

Mark Tuffin, Smith’s president, presented the check, saying “Our associates and customers are often touched by the care provided by St. Rose. Their mission is to serve people in need regardless of their ability to pay and we are pleased to help them in that mission.”

St. Rose is the only Children’s Miracle network hospital system in southern Nevada, and 100 percent of every dollar raised in our community stays here to provide pediatric equipment, charity care and health education for children treated at St. Rose.

Smith’s has a long history of supporting children’s hospitals. In the 1940’s, company founder, Dee Smith, collected pennies and delivered them to the nearby children’s hospital. In the past 10 years, Smith’s associates, suppliers and customers have raised over $7 million for freestanding children’s hospital’s charity care programs in Utah.
