Do not put off until tomorrow what you can do today! The fundraising campaign for the Employee Appreciation Gift Fund (EAGF) is underway. It is our opportunity to show our gift of love to the many loyal employees who work on our beautiful campus and provide us with the many services we enjoy daily. The EAGF program was started in 2012 as a way to express our appreciation to ALL of our employees, not just the ones we see every day. As a community, our giving efforts will express our gratitude and thanks for a job well done!

Please take time today to make your contribution to this effort. We contribute to the fund as our financial situation and our hearts direct us. Please make your contribution today! Collection boxes are located near each of the dining facilities, the MHCC Main Lobby and the Personal Care Lobby (lower level). If you prefer, you may make your contribution at the Peoples Bank in the Clubhouse or send a check directly to Glenn Achey at 202 Guest Drive. Checks should be made payable to EAGF.
