Annie Jeffrey Volunteers donates $4,500 for new Bassinet and Physical Therapy accessories
Thanks to funds from our wonderful Annie Jeffrey Volunteers, Annie Jeffrey Health Center has been able to purchase a new Bassinet and two items for Physical Therapy.
The new bassinet is needed as we are delivering more babies at our hospital and are planning to remodel our OB department soon.
The two items for Physical Therapy are a rebounder and a combo weight rack with mirror. A Rebounder is a mini trampoline on which you exercise or use to throw balls of different weight and catch them for shoulder and arm rehab. The weight rack consists of cuffed weights and dumbbells on an organized rack with a mirror for watching your form.
On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors, we would like to thank the Volunteers for all they have done. What a milestone this is for the Volunteers and our facility”, said Joe Lohrman, CEO, Annie Jeffrey Health Center.
“The organization is a great group of ladies that give their time and labor to the communities! They operate a Thrift Shop in the community of Osceola and have it open over 900 hours a year. They always have a smile and kind word for anyone that may venture in! The shop does a great business and over the past 24 years has been able to donate over $117,560.00 to the Annie Jeffrey Memorial County Health Center for the purchase of needed equipment! That alone is an amazing feat considering most of the items in the shop sell for pennies on the dollar!
The Volunteers are also on hand to help with community projects. They also help with the annual health fair, hold bake sales, help with the health center's golf tournament and any other community project that may need assistance!
The organization has over 60 members! The membership comes from all parts of the county and surrounding area. They also enjoy the social aspect of the group and often bridge the gaps that are often left in small, rural communities between the service organizations, churches, government programs and local businesses.
The Board of Directors and Staff of Annie Jeffrey are appreciative of everything the Volunteers do.”
