We happily participate in Casual for a Cause every Friday throughout the year. This program wonderfully reflects our commitment to the community. Each quarter, one team member chooses a charity to support, to which all team members then make a personal monetary donation and dress casually on Fridays. As a company, Payne Wealth Partners also provides a monetary donation to the charity of choice. We value sharing our resources, time, and talents with our local community, and Casual for a Cause participation is one of many ways we do so.

Reach Out and Read- Deaconess Clinic Pediatrics I & II
Reading is arguably the most important skill a child will ever learn. It needs to be nurtured from infancy and may be one of the greatest gifts that can be given to a child. The purpose of Reach Out and Read is to insure that this gift is brought to the children of Evansville. Over the last several decades, the definition of well-child care has evolved to include safety and injury prevention, behavioral pediatrics, language development, and school function. Physicians and nurse practitioners are frequently the only professionals trained in child development with which families have regular, one-on-one contact before children enter school. Thus, pediatric primary care providers have a unique opportunity to reach and educate parents and children during these early years. Every year, Deaconess Clinic Pediatrics strives to distribute new books to more than 4,000 children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years. To keep this program serving our community and patients we are looking to partner within the community to help purchase new books. The national program serves more than 4 million children and their families across the nation, with a special emphasis on serving those in low-income communities. Families served by Reach Out and Read read together more often, and their children enter kindergarten with larger vocabularies and stronger language skills, better prepared to achieve their potential in school and beyond. Reach Out and Read provides books for children in more than 14 languages, including Arabic, Chinese, Russian, and Spanish.
