2016 Employee Giving Campaign

A Moment Can Change a Life…
Let this be your moment to continue to make a difference.

As an AtlantiCare employee, you know all too well that life can change in a moment. We have the unique opportunity to participate in the many moments of our patients and visitors each and every day. We also have our strong AtlantiCare family to celebrate and support each other through personal and organizational moments.

In recent years, we’ve celebrated a lot together – continued growth, expanded family members, and clinical success to name a few. It is our hope we can continue to make moments matter through the AtlantiCare & Me Employee Giving Campaign. This giving campaign is designed to support the programs and offerings of AtlantiCare where additional resources are necessary to continue or extend the reach of these services. Over the next few weeks, we hope you will take a moment and make a difference in the lives of others in yet another way.

AtlantiCare Employees Give Because...

Frank GazzaraFrancis “Butch” Gazzara

Clinical Manager, Health Park at Hammonton
AtlantiCare employee since 2009

Butch was at the forefront during a transitional time for the Hammonton community.  Their beloved community hospital was closing and AtlantiCare collaborated with community leaders to ensure the residents of the Hammonton area had access to emergency and other health care services.

 “Time and time again, I see AtlantiCare doing the right thing. They did the right thing when it came to Hammonton and over time, I think people were able to see that,” Butch said. “I see the good that they are doing for the community and it inspires me to give back what I can.”

Butch is proud to be part of an organization that strives to do the right thing and is inspired to support AtlantiCare in its efforts to serve every member of the community regardless of their ability to pay.

Crystal D’ Amore

Executive Assistant
Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine
Department of Psychiatry
AtlantiCare employee  since 1988

Crystal’s parents instilled the importance of giving in her and her brother, David McGuinn, at an early age. This led them both to lead a life of service to others in every aspect of their lives.

“AtlantiCare provides many wonderful opportunities daily for me to be in the positon to help patients, visitors and my AtlantiCare family,” she said. “It truly makes me happy to help others.”

Crystal’s positive experiences with AtlantiCare, both clinically and personally, with her mother’s battle with breast cancer and her brothers passing in the line of duty, solidified her belief in knowing small acts of kindness can mean so much to others.  Whether a friend or a stranger, whether financial or in the form of a hug,  it is the support  we show one another as a community that can mean a huge difference in someone’s life.

Director of General Accounting
AtlantiCare employee since 2000
Monika loves being part of an organization that truly cares about its employees.

"When I learned about the Starfish Fund and how the money raised would be used to help employees and their families that suffered an unfortunate event, I decided it was a great opportunity for me to give back in a way that I could actually see the positive results my donation had," Monika said. "I believe in what the AtlantiCare Foundation does and that is why I give."

Monika hopes the people who have been touched by the kindness of AtlantiCare will pay it forward someday when they find another is in need. It is in the circle of kindness that she believes is the true definition of community spirit.
