Grow Your Own Campaign a Success. Trees Planted in Honor of Donors.

In June of 2016, the Community Healthcare Foundation established a two-year goal of raising $12,000 toward the Grow Your Own Scholarship and Loan Program. The Grow Your Own Scholarship and Loan Program supports students currently accepted into an accredited healthcare program that express an interest in returning to Community Hospital-Fairfax for employment.

In one short year, with the tremendous support of donors, the Foundation exceeded its goal and raised $12,500 for students pursuing careers in healthcare that are looking forward to returning to CH-F to begin their careers.

On May 5, 2017, Community Hospital – Fairfax and the Community Healthcare Foundation dedicated 16 trees in recognition of donors to the Grow Your Own Scholarship and Loan campaign. Donors and friends came out to enjoy the beautiful weather and tour the new trees with dedication plaques. Donors were also gifted recognition certificates or plaques.

Loan Recipient, Boo Cooper was in attendance to meet and thank donors. She expressed her excitement to complete her studies to be a Radiologic Technologist and return to Fairfax, her hometown, to serve the community.
