Today was a triumphant day for Hancock County Health System as the foundation donated over $34,000 back to the hospital and clinics. Hancock County Health System Foundation President Deanna Kelly describes the board’s emotion.
This donation was made possible by the generosity of many volunteers and a year plus of fundraising efforts. Kelly tells about some of those fundraisers.
The various departments of Hancock County Health System receive a budget allotment each year, however, the foundation likes to help out with those unforeseen items that arise. Department leaders can make a list of those incidentals and submit to the foundation. According to Kelly, this $34,431 grant will purchase some unbudgeted, but much needed items for the hospital and clinics.
This month’s upcoming Hancock County Health System Foundation Golf Outing to be held on the 18th still has space available for golf teams and tee box sponsorships. Raffle tickets are also being sold for a chance to win $1,000. To inquire, contact HCHS Foundation Marketing Director Shanda Hansen at 641-843-5000.
The Hancock County Health System Foundation Board is also looking at organizing a new fundraising event, and planning should begin soon, however, Kelly says no details are being released at this time.
