TWIG groups present $18,500 to HVCH
The TWIG (Together With Important Goals) groups of Hocking Valley Community Hospital Auxiliary recently presented the hospital with $18,500 from fundraising efforts over the past year.
On behalf of the Auxiliary, Ginger Johnson, President, accepted a check for $7,500 from TWIG II, a check for $7,000 from TWIG IV and TWIG VI presented a check for $4,000.
“These funds are raised throughout the year from individual TWIG projects such as ham sales, jewelry and flower sales, raffles, bake sales and Chinese auctions,” Johnson shared. “While fundraising efforts have looked a little different this year, we wanted to present the hospital with the proceeds from last year’s fundraising events. Funds are then used to support HVCH with hospital renovations or capital purchases when requested.”
Over the past few years, Auxiliary funds have been used to assist in renovations of the hospital’s lobby and admitting area located inside the ER entrance, to aide in the replacement of a hospital water line, for operating room equipment, and for renovations of patient rooms.
“We are so thankful for the members of our Auxiliary who work so hard to raise funds for our local hospital. They are a dedicated group of ladies who have assisted the hospital time and time again throughout the years,” Stacey Gabriel, HVCH CEO & President, said.
The HVCH Auxiliary was formed in 1960. Current officers serving for 2020 include Ginger Johnson, President; Betty Jo Downs, Vice President; and Kathy Stiverson, Treasurer.
