Donors Mary Lee and Robert Hill find joy in giving
Mary Lee and Robert “Bob” Hill share a silly sense of humor, a Russian Blue cat named Boris and a passion for giving back. Married in 1990, the couple became committed supporters of Providence Mission Hospital after moving to San Juan Capistrano in 1997.
Thoughtful givers, the Hills are passionate about how medicine is evolving and how the hospital is responding. They are curious about the hospital’s latest needs and actively educate themselves on how they can make a lasting impact through philanthropy.
“When we moved to the area, we recognized the need to support the hospital that served the community,” says Bob. “It was the first local charity we got involved with. In 2015, I had major heart surgery, and we doubled down on our support of Providence Mission Hospital.”
Aunt and uncle to all
Sharing an abiding love of family, friends and community, Mary Lee and Bob cite her father, Lebanese immigrant John, as a primary influence. “Mary Lee’s father was a kind and generous man who strongly supported the Catholic Church,” says Bob. “He gave us a good direction to follow.”
“My father gave me a lot of strength and knowledge,” says Mary Lee. “Both of my parents were just wonderful. They were my mentors.”
Mary Lee and Bob have stepped into the role of mentors and cherished aunt and uncle to their extended family. “We are proud of the role we have played in the lives of our nieces, nephews, cousins and surrounding communities,” beams Bob. “It’s very rewarding for us.”
“Years ago, I told my mother that I’m here on this earth to do good things,” shares Mary Lee. “I knew I wanted to be there for everybody.”
The generous and beloved couple is making good on Mary Lee’s vision, and it is this community’s great good fortune to count the Hills as part of the Providence Mission Hospital family.
Together, we can provide care that transforms lives, now and for years to come.
