THE HFCC ENVELOPE CHALLENGE

11/19/20

THE HFCC ENVELOPE CHALLENGE

Earlier this year, the Hospital Foundation of Crawford County (HFCC) had to cancel its 11th Annual Charity Golf Outing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we’re excited to announce that a new fundraising campaign called “The Envelope Challenge” is underway!

The Envelope Challenge consists of 200 digital “envelopes”, all progressively marked from $1 to $200. If all 200 envelopes are purchased, we will have collected over $20,000 which will be used toward the purchase of a handicapped-accessible van for the Crawford County Memorial Hospital (CCMH) Community Cares Patient Transportation Service.

Since the Community Cares Patient Transportation Service began in 2015, over 160,000 miles have been driven, providing 8,000 patients with rides to healthcare appointments. While the Transportation Service currently has two handicapped accessible buses, we are in need of a third vehicle to help serve our patients; the van will be used in addition to the two buses to help transport patients to and from medical appointments at Crawford County Memorial Hospital and other medical facilities in Denison, Iowa.

For many of us, we don’t give a second thought to our daily mode of transportation. However, there are members in our community who cannot or should not drive that rely on public transportation to provide them independent mobility. The ability to safely travel to and from healthcare appointments makes community-based programs such as the Community Cares Patient Transportation Service essential.
