Sauickie Family Donates Funds To Purchase Crib For KMC Emergency Department

kmc_PedCrib_wmThe Sauickie Family recently made a donation to the Kimball Medical Center Foundation to purchase a specialized crib for the hospital’s Emergency Department. In 2005, Alex and Jennifer unexpectedly lost their daughter Chloe to Oncocytic Cardiomyopathy, a rare and unknown heart condition.  Since the loss of Chloe, the Sauickies have dedicated their time to ensuring her memory and founded The Chloe Alexis Sauickie Foundation (Chloe’s Causes) in 2008, which Jennifer serves as its President. The mission of the Foundation is dedicated to helping children. Funding from Chloe’s Causes has provided many scholarships for children in the Jackson School System; funded research and support of Sudden Unexpected Death of a Child Program; and many other causes that benefit children.  
 
The partnership is strong between both the Chloe and Kimball Foundations and most recently funds raised through Chloe’s Causes and the Chloe Sauickie Fund of the Kimball Medical Center Foundation purchased a much needed state-of-the-art crib that will allow the physicians and nurses of the Emergency Room to better treat babies and small children in a safe and controlled environment.
 
Kimball’s Emergency Department did not have a multi-purpose crib that could be used for both sick and critical children. The new state-of-the-art crib purchased by the Sauickie Family has a built-in scale and also features a 360 degree rail drop so that the child is accessible at all sides. 
 
Alex Sauickie has served on the Kimball Medical Center Foundation Board of Trustees since 2007, first as its Treasurer, and currently as Vice Chairman.  Alex is employed with Albridge Solutions, Inc. in Lawrenceville as Managing Director of the company’s award winning operations and service organization.  Since 2002, the Sauickies have owned Liberty Tax Service franchise operations in NJ and in the Bronx, NY.  Alex and Jennifer Sauickie live in Jackson with their children, Kaitlyn, Gracie and Alex IV. 
 
“We are extremely grateful for the partnership we have with the Chloe Foundation,” said Teri Lacey, Major Gifts Officer for the Kimball Medical Center Foundation.  “Alex and Jennifer are truly wonderful individuals that have done so much good for our community and we are proud to work with them,” she adds.
 
The Kimball Medical Center Foundation was created to support Kimball Medical Center and the programs and services it provides. A variety of fundraising events held throughout the year, as well as contributions from individuals, corporations, and other donors help the Foundation fund facility improvements, and also help fund new programs and services and purchase state-of-the-art equipment. The Foundation enjoys the support of thousands of friends, especially the members of the Kimball Medical Center Auxiliary Association, whom not only raise funds for the hospital, but also serve as “ambassadors” in the community.
