Goshen Care Center receives donation for refurbished bus
TORRINGTON, Wyo. (Jan. 22, 2013) — Goshen Care Center has received a generous gift of $5,000 from the Community Healthcare Foundation that will be used toward the purchase of a 2011 refurbished bus.
The new bus is already being used to transport the residents of GCC throughout Torrington. The bus has the capacity to transport four wheelchairs and six residents. It is approved under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
“We can always count of the foundation to help,” said GCC board chairman Paul Novak. “They are always out front on many of the projects that have a positive impact in the community.”
Darin Yates, president of the foundation, said the request fit with the foundation’s mission.
“We work to support the healthcare needs in this county. We have done a lot with Community Hospital and the care center.”
GCC and the Foundation have a long relationship that began in 1996 when they partnered with the Goshen County and Banner Health to raise funds for the Care Link between GCC and Community Hospital. In addition to this most recent donation, the Foundation recently donated $10,000 to a kitchen self-serve project in the dining room in 2010 and $2,500 toward the living room remodel project in 2011.
The Community Healthcare Foundation raises money to help support various healthcare needs throughout Goshen County. One-hundred percent of that money stays in Goshen County.
