GRAFTON—On Tuesday, Taylor Health Care Center showed their support to the community by giving back.
Executive Director Phillip Donnelly presented Grafton High School Girls Basketball Team Coach Andrew Moore with a check for $500 to help with the cost of shirts for their Little Cats Basketball Camp.
Moore shared that the donation helped to cover the costs of approximately 70 shirts for students in grades first through eighth, as well as the counselors that was held in July.
“On the behalf of the basketball team, we would like to thank Taylor Health Care Center for their generous donation,” expressed Moore.
Moore voiced that he appreciates their support, and that it is nice to see an organization support the youth in the community.
Donnelly shared that the nursing home was more than happy to help and looks forward to helping the community with other projects in the future.
“We are more than happy to help with the camp,” commented Donnelly. “The community is the heart of the center and we love giving back.”
He disclosed that the donation was made possible through the AMFM Charitable Foundation, Inc., which began in 2009 as the fundraising arm of AMFM.
The foundation provides each AMFM center with the ability to enrich their communities directly, with financial donations to local charities and groups.
According to www.amfmwv.com/about, the funds were raised through the AMFM Charity Golf Classic, an annual golf tournament that is held at the Edgewood Country Club in Sissonville.
The foundation raises money for charitable organizations throughout West Virginia; assisting food pantries, local volunteer fire departments, libraries, women’s shelters, churches, hospitals and many more worthy organizations to improve the quality of life for all West Virginians.
In addition, the website stated that to date, more than $500,000 has been presented to local organizations throughout the state.
