St. Joseph's SPIRIT Club

From shoes for needy children, to blankets for the homeless, and food for the hungry, the SPIRIT Club does amazing things at St. Joseph’s and in the community.  

SPIRIT Club, an employee-led organization, stands for Special People Involved Reaching into Tomorrow. SPIRIT Club began with a small group of employees in 1985. Today, nearly 1,000 St. Joseph’s employees are involved through donations and volunteerism.  Because there is no overhead or operating expenses, every donated dollar goes to help others in need.

Join your colleagues in making a difference by becoming a SPIRIT Club member today.
