Community Health Charities

Recently, I attended the 2010 Champions in Health Awards Dinner which raised money for Community Health Charities (CHC). According to its web site, “CHC Community Health Charities of Kentucky is a federation of state’s premier health organizations that have joined together to raise charitable contributions in the workplace.”

CHC’s charities include:

Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Kentucky and Southern Indiana
American Diabetes Association, Kentucky Affiliate
American Lung Association of Kentucky
Arthritis Foundation Ohio River Valley Chapter
Brain Injury Alliance of Kentucky
Community Health Charities of Kentucky
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Kentucky Chapter
Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana
Harbor House of Louisville, Inc.
Huntington’s Disease Society of America, Kentucky Chapter
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
Kentucky & So. Indiana Stroke Association
Kentucky Hemophilia Foundation
Kosair Children’s Hospital
Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Inc.,The
Mental Health America of Kentucky
Muscular Dystrophy Association – Greater Louisville
National Multiple Sclerosis Society KY-SE Indiana Chapter
Ovarian Awareness of Kentucky, Inc.
Parkinson Support Center of Kentuckiana
Sickle Cell Association of Kentuckiana
Special Olympics Kentucky
Spina Bifida Association of Kentucky
Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Lexington Affiliate
Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Louisville Affiliate

These organizations do great work for the people of greater Louisville and are completely self-supporting. They receive little or no support from Metro United Way and are dependent upon the support of people in the community.

Consider supporting one or more of these organizations financially, either through CHC or directly with the organization.
