Community & Giving Back
Because CorrHealth Cares
At CorrHealth, our partners, neighbors and communities are important to us and we wholeheartedly believe it is our responsibility to support and make a strong and positive impact on the communities which we proudly serve. In our time serving in the communities which we partner, we are proud to have given back in a variety of ways. Just a few of the ways we give back are:
Our Partner-Counties And Friends

Donating Thanksgiving Meals to Families in Need
The Holidays are a stressful time for many families, especially for those who struggle to provide basic necessities for their families. CorrHealth is passionate about helping those who need a helping hand and we love the look on faces when we show up with a truck load of turkeys, hams, cases of water and all the “fixins”. Thanksgiving is about giving and giving to needy families is merely one way we give back to the communities who give so much to us and our families.
St. Anthony Cathedral School’s Annual Fundraiser
CorrHealth supports the St. Anthony Cathedral School and its annual fundraisers. St. Anthony sold raffle tickets to help maintain and advance the school’s programs in addition to supporting scholarship assistance, academic programs, classroom supplies, advancing technology, fine arts, athletics, and professional development.
CorrHealth Cares and we are passionate about supporting the schools in the communities which we proudly serve.
Donating New Clothing to Help Needy Families in the Local Communities Which We Proudly Serve
CorrHealth is passionate about supporting the local communities in which we serve and donating new clothes and shoes for adults and children during the Holiday season is one of the ways we love to give back and prove we care.

CorrHealth has been supporting Toys for Tots for many years and we look forward to continuing our support to help lessen the stress and burden on underprivileged families and doing what we can to place smiles on the faces of children for Christmas.
McLennan County Jail Annual Christmas Party
CorrHealth is proud of our partnership with McLennan County and we love supporting McLennan County Jail’s Annual Christmas Party by donating funds and our time which allows approximately 40 children to choose a wrapped gift from under the Christmas tree. We also donate several new bicycles for boys and girls of various ages and sizes. We can’t wait for next Christmas so we can give more and help make Christmas just a little bit more joyous for the children and families of McLennan County.
The Women’s Storybook Project
The mission of The Women’s Storybook Project (www.storybookproject.org) is to connect children with their incarcerated mothers through the joys of literature. Volunteers travel to female prisons and detention facilities to record an incarcerated mother as she reads a book for her child. The mothers will connect with their child by leaving a short, heartfelt and personal message along with her readings. Once finished, the new book and recordings are mailed to the child. The Women’s Storybook Project began in 2003 with five volunteers, four tape recorders and 25 books and the program is now being facilitated in nine Texas female prisons through 200 Volunteers, mailing approximately 350 books and recordings each month. The Women’s Storybook Project is proud to be the recipient of four Governor’s Criminal Justice Volunteer Service Awards. CorrHealth loves supporting effective programs which work to connect and reunite families, and we are proud to be a strong supporter and sponsor of The Women’s Storybook Project and the important things they are doing
Veterans And Our First Responders
Carry the Load
Carry the Load began as a mission to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day and has transformed into an active, meaningful, and incredibly touching way to honor and celebrate the sacrifices made by our Nation’s heroes which include our Military, Veterans, Law Enforcement, Firefighters, Rescue personnel, First Responders, and their families. CorrHealth has been actively supporting Carry the Load for the past several years. It is an organization and event we believe in, and it’s one we look forward to supporting and attending each Memorial Day weekend.
Semper Gratus’ Annual Helicopter Hog Hunt for Wounded Warriors
At Semper Gratus’ Annual Helicopter Hog Hunt, Wounded Warriors from around the United States gather outside of Wichita County, Texas for the annual hog hunt to share stories of service and sacrifice and gather in a safe and welcoming environment to face their challenges, begin to heal and find peace. At the Annual Helicopter Hog Hunt Veterans may be surprised with surprise appearances from celebrities such as members of the Dallas Cowboys, Retired College Basketball Coach Bobby Knight, and other notables who attend the three-day event to simply shake their hands, thank them for their service and show they care.
Steps 4 Vets
CorrHealth wholeheartedly believes in supporting our Veterans; therefore, we support several Veteran’s charities such as Steps4Vets. Steps4Vets works to raise awareness of Veteran suicide rates (22 per day) and helps combat the struggles our Veterans face on a daily basis with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Few things touch your heart and spirit more than giving to those with intellectual disabilities. Seeing the smiles on their faces as these athletes realize their importance and they achieve and watching them receive their medals is an incredible experience for everyone involved, whether you’re a family member, coach, sponsor or volunteer. CorrHealth’s family and friends are proud and honored to gather for a weekend in May to volunteer at the Annual Special Olympics Games of Texas. CorrHealth has been passionate about working with the Special Olympics for over four decades, this is a charity that is close to our hearts and we look forward to giving and doing more for the Special Olympics in the future.
Organizations Which Fight Illness And Disease
Annual Great Cycle Challenge to Fight Cancer in Children
Over the past several years, CorrHealth has recruited a passionate team of novice cyclists to help support, and fund research to develop better treatments and finally find a cure for childhood cancer. We are beyond proud of the fact that our team raised $21,647 in 2018, which was the 3rd highest amount raised in the Nation. The Great Cycle Challenge is a charity which supports the Children’s Cancer Research Fund and St. Jude’s and it’s an event which has grown to be one of the largest cycling events in the United States, and we can’t wait to take part again this year and, in the years to follow.
CorrHealth is committed to doing all that we can to support organizations who are working to find a cure for the diseases which affect our families, the families of those we serve and those in our communities. Alzheimer’s is a cruel disease that has affected our families and the families of those we love, it is close to our heart and we are committed to helping find a cure. It’s a fact that over 5.7Million people live with Alzheimer’s in the US and is Alzheimer’s is the 6th cause of death in the Unites States and it kills more people than breast and prostate cancer combined.
The American Heart Association
Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally, both of which the American Heart Association fights through education and research. Like Cancer and Alzheimer’s, heart disease has impacted our families and the families of those we partner and serve, and we feel it’s our responsibility to do all we can to help support the fight. CorrHealth is proud to support and donate to charities such as the American Heart Association as we see this just another way we “Do Right”.
