The Atkinson Good Samaritan Society Prairie Winds is looking to get a generator for the assisted living facility.
The facility would like to have a generator for when the power goes out due to storms. With a generator, the residents will be safe from falls, the facility will be able to provide basic necessities such as heat, air and hot meals and residents will be able to stay in their own living areas throughout a power outage.
The center has been working on gathering donations as the cost of the project is $69,000. So far they have raised 75 percent of the goal and would like to have fund raising done by spring.
For more information or questions please contact Jenny at 402-851-9263 or 402-925-2099.
You may also donate online at good-sam.com in care of Good Samaritan Society Atkinson. Checks can be mailed to Good Samaritan Foundation, P.O. Box 5039, Sioux Falls, SD 57117 and in the memo please write Atkinson 4120 Generator Fund.
Welcome to the discussion.
