Why I Give.


In 1995, the Foundation selected Peggy Barringer to co-chair the launch of the “President’s Club” employee giving campaign. Twenty-eight years later, Peggy, now Director of Surgical Services at CHS Stanly, has never missed a month of giving to the Foundation.

“When the Foundation began, it was about the future and ensuring that our great hospital would be here for our children. I now have six grandchildren and the legacy that our teammates have provided through their gifts has improved countless lives. Working in surgical services, the women whose lives have been saved through free mammograms has been especially meaningful to me. Because of the Foundation, every woman in our community can have an annual mammogram, regardless of her ability to pay.”

“I’m proud to have been involved with the Foundation’s mission for 28 years and I look forward to the future as we continue to impact thousands of lives together each year.”
