A Message from Grateful Donors – Keith & Tess Heikes

Keith and Tess Heikes were taught the importance of giving back from an early age. Each of them grew up with generous parents who instilled in them the value of giving what you have, whether that is time, money, talent, or compassion. The Heikes family believes that giving is contagious, and every gift, big and small, makes an impact.

Keith and Tess love that Hutchinson feels like extended family and that the community works hard to support its members and businesses. The tight-knit, small-town feel is important, and Keith jokes that, “Hutchinson is big enough to make the weather report, but small enough to avoid the traffic report.” 

When asked why they choose to donate to the Foundation, Tess responded, “I feel that the Foundation is there to support and improve the lives of those in our community and as an employee of Hutchinson Health it is a privilege to be a part of that. I can live my personal values through my work and through giving to the foundation. Keeping healthcare local is important to us because it is crucial for people in rural communities to have access to quality care, not just for acute needs but also for education and prevention. This is the key to having a healthier community.”

Thank you, Keith and Tess, for your generosity!
