The Shipshewana Retail Merchants Association (SRMA) was recognized recently with a Bronze Pillar Award from the Parkview LaGrange Foundation. The Pillar Awards recognize an organization’s cumulative giving through the Parkview LaGrange Foundation. The SRMA was a leader in providing funds that enabled the purchase of power cots for the LaGrange County EMS ambulances.
“We deeply appreciate the SRMA members’ support,” said Jen Will, coordinator of the Parkview LaGrange Foundation. “Their gift helped us meet the matching grant requirements through the Olive B. Cole Foundation and equip the remaining ambulances in the county with power cots. These cots dramatically increase the safety and efficiency of patient transport in emergency situations – for both patients and emergency personnel.”
The Parkview LaGrange Foundation supports hospital clinical programs and services through charitable gifts and grants. Among on-going foundation initiatives are the Medication Assistance Program (MAP) that provides financial support to uninsured and underinsured patients for their medicines and the Special Touch Program that provides patients with non-medical assistance during an emergency. The programs are greatly valued by our patients and contribute toward their good health. All donations to the Parkview LaGrange Foundation remain in County for continued improvement of the hospital’s services, facilities, equipment and programs.
