Sarita's Spirit of Giving
Through Friends of Holy Cross Health


Sarita Harris, 49, has a busy career as an independent consultant. Nevertheless, she recently found time in her schedule to become a member of the Friends of Holy Cross Health—an all-volunteer organization dedicated to raising funds to support Holy Cross Health. She likes the fact that her time commitment is flexible and that it enables her to volunteer her professional skills for a cause she believes in.

 “Holy Cross Health has a direct impact on my community,” says Sarita, who lives just a few blocks from  Holy Cross Hospital. “Several years ago, I had major surgery there and couldn’t have asked for a better experience.  Now I’m giving back by volunteering with the Friends of  Holy Cross Health.”

Originally formed in 1963 as the Auxiliary of Holy Cross Hospital, the organization recently changed its name to Friends of Holy Cross Health. Volunteers raise money through proceeds from the gift shops at Holy Cross Hospital and Holy Cross Germantown Hospital, bake sales and other  activities. In its more than 50 years of service, Friends of  Holy Cross Health has donated over $13 million.
