Foundation support requested The Wakonda Community Health Foundation is seeking financial support for the new program.
Information relative to the foundation has been mailed to a broad range of individuals and it is hoped that many will help support the community project.
The Wakonda Community Health Foundation has been formed under the auspices of Heritage Manor. However, there is a separate board of directors from various local backgrounds that direct the work of the foundation.
The Avera Health Foundation of Sioux Falls cares for all of the detail work of the foundation, with the exception of dispersing and raising of funds. That is the work of the local board.
Although the local foundation was only begun in 2004 it has already supplied some equipment funds for the Manor and it has provided a scholarship in 2004 for a graduating senior who is going into the health care field.
Local board members are hoping for a good response to the financial support drive. Sometime after the first of the year an informational meeting relative to the foundation is being planned.
