(Grinnell, IA – May 2, 2016) Susan Witt representing the Claude W. Ahrens Charitable Trust has fulfilled her pledge and donated $25,000 to the Hammond Center for Assisted Living Building Campaign. As this was a matching gift challenge, other donations were doubled making the value of this gift $50,000! “We are extremely grateful to Susan and the many other donors who stepped up to get our fundraising project started,” said Dion Schrack, Executive Administrator of St. Francis Manor.
St. Francis Manor has applied for a $3.5 million USDA loan to add the Hammond Center for Assisted Living to the St. Francis Manor campus. The USDA is in the process of approving the loan which is expected to be finalized by late spring or early summer.
“All sizes of gifts are needed and appreciated to get this important project started,” Schrack said.
