We also have pledges to be paid in the next two years equaling $8,910.08 by the end of 2018.
Thank you so very much for your part in helping us meet this first goal! Every dollar helps us reach a goal this size, no matter whether it is $10 or $5,000. First of all, THANK YOU to the MMH Staff who have committed to the MMHF Legacy Campaign 2016 through the MMH Payroll Deduction Plan. We appreciate their support tremendously! The staff believes in the good things that are happening at their hospital, our hospital. Thank you also to everyone who supports us throughout the year with donations or for our main fundraiser, the MMHF Annual Legacy Event. What a wonderful way to support our projects by attending the legacy events with the donor having a wonderful evening right in Holyoke while donating to a great cause.
We have begun a new year in raising $100,000 and would appreciate your consideration of helping us meet the 2017 goal.
