Grace Cottage fundraising for expansion
TOWNSHEND - After Black Friday and Cyber Monday comes Giving Tuesday on November 29, a worldwide day of philanthropy during the season of gratitude.
Grace Cottage Family Health & Hospital asks its friends and neighbors to help it cross the finish line and raise $50,000 for a much-needed expansion of its hospital emergency department. With an uptick in emergency department visits, this project is crucial to improve patient privacy and security.
Grace Cottage has received its Act 250 permit and is scheduled to begin construction on the 17-foot-by-42-foot emergency department addition the first week of January. The emergency department will remain fully open throughout the construction process. A temporary entrance will be located in the glassed-in Nessel Pavilion on the south side of the hospital and will be well marked.
To participate in Grace Cottage’s campaign call (802) 365-9109 or go online to www.gracecottage.org. Checks payable to Grace Cottage with “Giving Tuesday” on the memo line can be sent to PO Box 1, Townshend, VT 05353.
