The Dawson Co-op Credit Union committed a $30,000 donation to the JMHS Foundation’s Caring for the Community campaign. John Nevins, DCCU President and Gene Sis, DCCU Board Member, recently presented the check to JMHS Foundation Board Member and Major Gifts Chair, Ken Club.
Said Nevins “The new care center not only improves access to quality care, but also ensures good jobs and economic income for our community. We are proud to support a project that aligns with our philosophy of helping to build stronger communities.”
The JMHS Foundation’s Caring for the Community fundraising campaign was created to ensure the new, $16.5 million dollar, Care Center is built to its greatest potential. The new facility features 56 private rooms with attached private handicapped accessible bathrooms that include a shower. It addresses infrastructure and compliance issues as well as changing expectations to accommodate future residents.
The JMHS Foundation set an ambitious, $1.4 million dollar, fundraising goal for the campaign. They recently announced they are nearing that goal with pledges and donations of $956,000 to date.
