All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg said Monday that it had received more than $200,000 in donations in 2015 from one of the area’s largest companies.
The donations from Jabil Circuit, based in St. Petersburg, will help the hospital’s recently established Institute for Brain Protection Sciences, which includes programs in neurology, neurosurgery, epileptology, neuro-oncology, neuroradiology, behavioral medicine, rehabilitative medicine, neuropathology, neuropsychiatry, psychiatry, and neuropsychology.
“Jabil has been a great example of a corporate philanthropic partner,” All Children’s Executive Vice President Jenine Rabin said. “Their employees always go above and beyond when it comes to fundraising efforts and their support truly makes a difference in helping us provide the best care for children in the Tampa Bay area and beyond.”
Company employees have held several fundraisers for the Johns Hopkins partnered hospital over the past year, including a bike rodeo and family safety event where they collected bikes and helmets for needy children in the community. Since 1985, Jabil and its employees have raised more than $1 million in support of All Children’s.
“We are passionate about our ongoing relationship with All Children’s Hospital,” Jabil CEO Mark Mondello said. “Our relationship with the hospital has continued to grow over the years and we are proud to be able to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with All Children’s in support of the children.”
