Dedicated volunteers deliver on promise

| August 26, 2013

truckCOSHOCTON – When the Coshocton Hospital volunteers set their hearts and energy on a project to benefit the hospital, they deliver. This year, the Coshocton Hospital Pink Ladies Auxiliary and the Heart of Gold Committee joined forces for a common cause: The replacement of the hospital maintenance truck. The collaboration culminated with the delivery of a pick-up truck, greeted in celebration by members of the maintenance staff, the Heart of Gold and the Pink Ladies Auxiliary.

The Pink Ladies selected the truck purchase as their cause for 2013 and have been wearing pink t-shirts in support of the project since their goal was set in January. Proceeds from gift shop sales and fundraising events have been dedicated to the goal of a $7,000 donation to help purchase a truck, snow blade and lift for the vehicle that provides maintenance support to the hospital and its hospital-based clinics in Coshocton, Newcomerstown, Dresden, West Lafayette and Warsaw.

The Heart of Gold committee held a gala on Aug. 24 to help meet their $5,000 pledge toward the purchase. The gala, held at the Lake Park Pavilion, offered a fun night of dinner, dancing and raffle drawings for the attendees.

“I can’t say enough about the hard work the members of these two organizations have done to help ensure the safety and efficiency of our maintenance staff,” said Joe Slominski, Coshocton Hospital Director of Facility Services. “With the help of these contributions, we were able to purchase an excellent used truck locally, just in time for winter.”
