Giving Back

Brookings Health System often benefits from the gracious contributions of time, talent and treasure from our community members. To pay-it-forward and commit to regional economic and cultural growth, Brookings Health supports non-profit community groups and activities in our region.

We also encourage our team members to become actively involved in our community. Each year we provide opportunities for employees to volunteer and give back through our Caring & Sharing program. Annual community service projects our employees help with include: volunteering for the Brookings Marathon, serving at the Harvest Table, donating to Brookings Area United Way, organizing an employee food drive to support the Brookings County Food Pantry and coordinating an employee toy drive to support Project Joy.
