Alden and Dorothy “Doll” Siegel decided long ago that they didn’t need a yacht or a jet or a trip around the world. Instead, their priority has been to use their extra dollars to improve others’ quality of life.
“I don’t think there’s anything more important than our hospital,” says Mrs. Siegel, who was a registered medical technician earlier in her career.
The Siegels became connected to Morristown Medical Center through their Realtor, Mary Horn, who mentioned the Bargain Box Thrift Boutique, operated by the Women’s Association of the hospital. Mrs. Siegel began volunteering there, and the Convent Station couple’s commitments to Morristown Medical Center have grown ever since. They donate annually and made a future gift to the Foundation through Mr. Siegel’s IRA, making them members of the Brookfield Legacy Society. Mr. Siegel also serves on the society’s Advisory Council.
“We have been lucky in many ways, and at this point, we’re happy to support something that will benefit many people,” says Mr. Siegel, who had careers in insurance and finance. “Obviously, we’re hoping that someday we may get some benefits out of it. Right now, it’s fun to think about ‘spreading the wealth.’”
For him, doing something that benefits both his family and others is important.
“What could be better than giving to the hospital?” he asks.
