BJC HealthCare often hears from community members, patients, family members and colleagues about the ways BJC and its employees have made a difference in their lives, in the lives of their loved ones or in the communities BJC serves.

Robert Schmitz 0 43

The MBSH Ambassadors have scheduled regular meetings to help fill backpacks with food for children in food-insecure homes. Teachers and counselors from the Sullivan elementary and primary schools refer students to the program. Food-filled backpacks are sent home on Fridays to get the children and their families through the weekend, when school lunches aren’t available.

Taking one step at a time to heal

Swimming, dancing and remembering their loved ones — these were some of the activities campers participated in at the 20th annual Stepping Stones Camp, offered at no cost to campers by BJC Hospice. The three-day-long bereavement camp is offered to children ages 6-12 who have experienced the death of a loved one. Professional staff and volunteers lead the camp, which offers a safe place to explore grief — balanced by plenty of fun.
