Expanding Distance Learning Network with USDA
Southern Tier Health Care System recently received approval for a funding boost to expand our distance learning network. This positive development follows past USDA Rural Development Distance Learning and Telemedicine grant program investments. The plan now involves adding two new user locations at Homecare & Hospice and Total Senior Care. Additionally, we're acquiring equipment for non-fixed user sites. This equipment can be used at any spot with a good internet connection. The USDA supports us with a generous grant of $120,348, marking the sixth round of support for our expanding network. We are thankful to the USDA for their ongoing support and will continue to work on expanding our network.
Cattaraugus Gives: A Big Thank You from STHCS!
I'm thrilled to share some exciting news from Tuesday's Cattaraugus Gives event. Our participation was a big success, thanks to the amazing support we received. A total of $970 came in from 48 different donors, and we even snagged the Backyard Bargain Hour prize, worth $500, for getting the most donations between 3 and 4 p.m. A special shoutout to Worth W. Smith for sponsoring this prize and helping us reach $1,470.
I want to thank everyone who contributed. Your generosity made a significant impact. And, of course, a big thank you to the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation for their continued support, making Giving Tuesday another success for us.
