FOUNDATION ADDS CHAPEL IN REMODEL PROJECT
Annie Jeffrey Health Center added a chapel/meditation room as part of its 2017 remodeling project. This remodeling project also updated the clinic, added new clinic vestibule doors and modernized the main hallway. We are in the process of updating the sleep study rooms and some of the patient rooms. The Foundation for Annie Jeffrey was fortunate to have several donors contribute for this project.
The Foundation for Annie Jeffrey Board of Directors donated $70,000 from their annual campaign to Annie Jeffrey Health Center to purchase a Konica digital X-ray detector that we will use in our current X-ray room to convert Computed Radiography to Digital Radiography. Computed Radiography has a cassette with an imaging plate that is used to capture the image. Digital Radiography has the detector that captures the image and sends it directly to a viewing computer, which is a faster process. Advantages include time efficiency and less radiation.
Pictured in the Chapel are Foundation for Annie Jeffrey Board Members: Brian Beckner, Steve Peterson, Mary Lerch, Joe Lohrman, Annie Jeffrey CEO, Karen Stevens, Kathy Gabel, Karleen Watts, Margie Hayes and John Girard. Not pictured are board member, LeRoy Gerrard and Susan Chrastil, Foundation Director.
HARVEST FOR A HEALTHY LIFE
Join with us in our HARVEST FOR A HEALTHY LIFE campaign by making a donation to the Foundation for Annie Jeffrey. Funds raised from this will go toward our annual campaign.
Donating grain, rather than cash, is a popular form of giving in our agricultural community. Farmers can donate grain before it is sold, saving on taxes. Producers gift a certain number of bushels to the Foundation and then the Foundation sells the grain. The producer doesn’t have to claim the donated grain as income but can deduct the cost of raising those bushels.
All donors giving gifts accumulative of $1,000 or more will be recognized on our “Wall of Commitment”.
Tell your local elevator manager you’d like to make a grain donation to the Foundation for Annie Jeffrey today. Your donation is an investment in the health of your community. Donate today!
