Posted 5/14/2021 - SCHCF Community Projects

Stafford County Health Care Foundation has been busy with community projects in 2021, in line with their mission to improve community health. First aid kits were purchased for Stafford Recreation Commission for the sports teams' coaches to have available at practices and games. These will be returned at the end of each season, to be used for the following sport season. Leisure Homestead in Stafford had needs met for two charting tablets and an oxygen concentrator. Leisure Homestead in St. John received a hi-low bed and a broda chair that they were needing. Kenwood Plaza acquired a mobile blood pressure unit and a scale to be used with a wheelchair. These projects would not have been possible without donations from the generous residents of Stafford County. Suggestions for community health improvement are always welcome.
