Hospital Annual Appeal thanks Puiia Lumber
Barbara Belanger, president of the Rumford Hospital Auxiliary , thanks Puiia Lumber owner Tom Puiia for his company's generous gift to the 2012 Annual Appeal.
MEXICO -- Barbara Belanger, president of the Rumford Hospital Auxiliary and chair of the hospital's Development Committee, stopped by Puiia Lumber recently to thank owner Tom Puiia for his company's generous gift to the 2012 Annual Appeal.
"It's so rewarding to have the Puiia name in our list of donors," Belanger noted. Enrico Puiia, Tom's father, whose portrait Belanger and Tom Puiia stood beneath for a photograph was a long-time board member at Rumford Hospital, and the family has always been very supportive.
The 2012 Annual Appeal is winding down to close on December 31. "I encourage other businesses to follow Tom's example and give before the end of the appeal year," said Belanger. "The hospital counts on both local businesses and the contractors who provide goods and services to the hospital for a significant portion of the funds raised every year."
Businesses and individuals who didn't receive an appeal letter and remittance envelope or who have misplaced theirs can call Rumford Hospital Community Relations at 369-1143.
