Mill Pond Health Campus, a provider of senior health and living services, has donated more than $2,600 to the American Red Cross Wabash Valley and 4,000 pounds of food to the Emergency Food Pantry this holiday season.
Through hosting several fundraising events, including Dash and Dine, 5K Run for the Red Jingle Run and Mill Pond's Breakfast with Santa, as well as collecting canned food items from the students of Tzouanakis Intermediate School in Greencastle, Mill Pond has been able to give back to the local community and make the holiday season a little brighter for many.
Each year, Mill Pond Health Campus, along with its sister health campuses across a five-state area, participates in an annual fundraiser called Hope for the Holidays.
Each campus is responsible for creating a fundraiser, with the proceeds benefiting a local charity. In addition to Hope for the Holidays, the Mill Pond Greencastle campus also participates in an annual, companywide fundraising event each summer called Independence from Hunger. This year Mill Pond Health Campus donated 4,000 pounds of food to the emergency food pantry.
"Mill Pond is committed to strengthening the community we serve," Brooke Trissel, community service representative, said. "At Mill Pond, supporting organizations like the American Red Cross help to make a difference by improving the quality of life in our community.
"At our health campus, we are constantly striving to make a positive difference in Greencastle and Putnam County," Trissel added.
Mill Pond offers a full range of personalized senior living services, including assisted living, memory care, rehab to home, outpatient therapy and long-term care. To learn more about Mill Pond, persons may visit 1014 Mill Pond Lane or call 653-4397.
