WHC FOUNDATION TAKES ON A "SCRAPPY" FUNDRAISING PROJECT

        The WHC Foundation has embarked on a unique fundraising effort geared to encourage area farmers and rural property owners to give back to the community by supporting the hospital.  Teaming up with CarQuest Auto Parts owner and scrap metal dealer Michael Martell, the Foundation is asking area rural residents to consider hauling in scrap iron, old machinery and other metals to Martell’s—or having them come pick it up—and donating all or part of its value to the Foundation.
        In early April, the Foundation Board mailed letters to over 900 area rural residents explaining this program, and asked them to return a postcard included with the mailing, indicating whether or not they would be interested in participating.   To date, response has been light, according to Foundation officials.  They are hopeful once spring’s work is complete and area farmers can take a breath, more will return the postcard and choose to help the hospital raise some much-needed cash.
        Both sides win in this project:  the WHC receives valuable financial support while individuals can finally dispose of the scrap metal that has been piling up.  Those interested have the choice of hauling in the scrap themselves, or having Martell’s pick it up.  The Foundation encourages anyone who received the mailing to return the pre-stamped postcard with the information requested, whether or not they are in a position to help. There is no deadline on this project.   If you no longer have the postcard, you may contact Foundation Coordinator Tom Lovik at 321-2371 or Michael Martell at 452-4200 to make an appointment.

(NOTE: Some people who don’t live on farms received this mailing and have questioned why. You may live in town, but if your mail is delivered to a mail box, it is put there by a rural route driver and you are part of that route.  Every resident receives mass mailing.)
