Hospital Annual Appeal off at a sprint
RUMFORD -- A $2,500 gift to benefit Lariviere Oncology patients from the Oakdale Country Club Women's Golf Association jump started Rumford Hospital's 2011 Annual Appeal.
Following a late October brochure and letter mailing, gifts have been arriving in bundles - 28 gifts the first day of returns.
"I think it spurred donors on when we were able to list the items that are being purchased with last year's annual appeal funds," says Barbara Belanger, chair of the Development Committee. "It's an impressive list of equipment with new stretchers, a new baby warmer, pharmacy refrigeration units, Specialty Clinics' EKG unit, a new crib for the Medical/Surgical unit, and ceiling mounted patient lifts."
People who did not receive an annual appeal mailing may request one by calling Rumford Hospital Community Relations at 369-1143 or may send gifts to the Community Relations Office at Rumford Hospital, 420 Franklin St., Rumford 04276.
