The Loar Auxiliary of Garrett County Memorial Hospital added their donation of $7,000 in support of the hospital employees in a recent fund drive held by the Hospital Foundation’s WHAT team.

WHAT stands for We Help Achieve Tomorrow and is the slogan selected by the employee group to promote their fundraising effort.

Through the leadership of the WHAT Committee, employees joined together and raised $40,000 in pledges and donations that will be used to fund a new point of sale system in the hospital cafeteria to allow for the addition of employee payroll deduction and debit/credit card options as payment during meal times. A payroll deduction option will also be available on designated vending machines throughout the hospital facility. The new system is expected to be operational sometime in October.

The WHAT effort also included a component that will fund a revamping of the walking trail located adjacent to the hospital. The trail will be accessible to the public as well as the employees with work expected to be accomplished in early spring of 2013.

Employee members of the WHAT Committee include Jeannie Miller, chairman, Bev Rasel, Peggy Riggleman, Tammy Hull, Sherry Helbig, Deb Wilt, Shauna Perrine, Beth Spencer, Jessica Lucas and Kathy Greaser, Foundation Director.
