Rural Roots Gardens

Rural Roots Gardens StaffFor Kelly Jones of Rural Roots Gardens, philanthropy is in her nature – or in her daylilies to be exact. For four years, Jones has hosted a daylily festival as a FUN-raiser for the Ross Memorial Hospital.

Jones is passionate in her support of the hospital. In 2011, the funds were used to support the Palliative Care Unit and the purchase of physiotherapy equipment. Past FUN-raisers have helped to purchase the hospital's digital mammography equipment and contributed to the "On the Horizon" campaign for the Dialysis Unit.

"We're touched at Kelly's dedication to the Ross," said Erin Coons, Executive Director of the Foundation. "Having had family members in hospital, Kelly knows that donors can have a significant impact on patient care. They really do play a role in their loved ones' care. By giving to various areas of the hospital, Kelly is showing her support for her friends and family. It's really inspiring."
