The Villa St. Foundation’s midyear appeal successfully raised enough funds to
refurnish 22 rooms in the long term care area of the facility. Foundation
Director Lori Wagner noted that the last room updates were back in 1975. “We are
so grateful to the families and businesses that helped to make this happen. In
addition, the Foundation Glow in the Dark Golf Committee raised enough money to
do seven rooms and the Villa Auxiliary did four rooms. The residents today were
so grateful to get new furniture. A nurse just stopped in to say thank you and
added that the residents were smiling ear to ear.”
The Foundation’s Annual appeal in November also raised enough to do another 30
rooms on the Villa side in the near future along with new bedspreads with shams
for the short term stay rooms.
Rodger Coauette, Chair of the Villa St. Vincent/The SUMMIT Foundation Community
Relations and Annual Planning Committee helped place donor plates on the newly
refurbished rooms. These plates recognize donors and are set next to the
original donor plate from the seventies when the building opened; to continue
recognition of the generosity of donors both today and yesterday.
