CMH Foundation is Gifted $40,000 by Couple to Provide Healing To Those Suffering Locally

Community Memorial Hospital (CMH) Foundation is the recipient of a substantial monetary gift made by a local Syracuse couple who wanted to remain anonymous. Lisa Voorhees, VP Clinic Operations & Support Services, was notified of the couple’s wishes in late December 2015. In presenting the check to CMH Administration, the anonymous donors included a letter that stated,

“Jesus is the reason for the season…every season! It is in recognition of His saving grace that we give this gift of $40,000 to the CMH Foundation.

Because God has blessed us, we bless others, as we are able.

It is our hope that this gift may help to provide healing to those suffering in the Syracuse area.

To our Heavenly Father be the glory!”

It is with sincere appreciation that the CMH Foundation accepts this gracious gift.
