P.E.A.K.S. an auxillary
of St Vincent Foundation.
mission & vision
P.E.A.K.S. means People Everywhere are Kind and Sharing. We honestly believe that. We are here to help cancer patients that are struggling financially while they are in treament. We raise and donate about $70,000 annually to patients in treatment for cancer at St Vincent Hospital, Billings Clinic, Big Horn Basin Regional Cancer Center and St Vincent's Frontier Cancer Center.
We helped over 248 patients in 2014 with a variety of things from gas money for travel to treatment, to utilities and groceries. Taking away the financial burdens of daily life helps the patients concentrate on getting to treatment and getting well.
St Vincent Foundation manages the PEAKS funds and administers the grants to the patients. That way all of the money that our volunteers raise can go directly to the patients in need.
Social workers from ALL local healthcare providers can submit a grant application from their patients that are in need of financial assistance.
