Herbein is pleased to announce the Friends of Reading Hospital as the recipient of the September 2016 Herbein Community Heroes Award in the amount of $500.

For over 125 years, the Friends of Reading Hospital are passionate about improving the quality of healthcare in Berks County. The Friends contribute their time and talents to manage community fundraising events. Projects recently supported by the Friends include: Partnership for a Healthier Berks County, HeartSAFE Berks County, NicView webcams for the NICU, support for McGlinn Cancer Institute and supplies for patient comfort items to name a few.

The Friends focus on not only Reading Hospital initiatives, but also the health of the community. Most notably, they have placed over 500 AED's throughout Berks County to prevent deaths related to cardiac events. They raise funds to help individuals with diabetes, cancer, and individuals in need.
