GREENSBURG — Aspen Place Health Campus recently donated more than $1,800 to the Greensburg Daily News Cheer Fund.

The goal of the Cheer Fund has always been to bring the joy of Christmas to needy children and their families in Greensburg and Decatur County.

Without the help of fellow community members, the mission of providing presents, food, and clothing would not be possible. Essentially, it’s the combination of the Decatur County and Greensburg family coming together for one common goal: sharing the giving spirit of the holidays.

Aspen Place staff members, residents, and friends of the health campus came together to make this possible.

“At Aspen Place, we believe that charities such as the Greensburg Daily News Cheer Fund play a pivotal role in improving quality of life in our community,” Trilogy Health Services Executive Director Katrina Keck stated. “By coming together to offer our support, we can help them make a positive impact in the lives of those in need. We’d like to thank everyone who helped make this year’s Hope for the Holidays a huge success.”

Information provided by Aspen Place indicates that in addition to hosting several fundraising events including an employee Christmas tree decorating contest and a potato bar fundraiser, the campus collected cash donations from residents and family members.

Along with their sister campuses across the Midwest, Aspen Place participated in Trilogy Health Services’ Hope for the Holidays fundraiser and raised $717,760 company-wide.

On behalf of the Greensburg Daily News, Shelley Barton thanked Aspen Place for their donation.

“On behalf of the entire Cheer Fund committee, I would like to personally thank each and every person who contributed to Aspen Place’s generous donation,” Barton said. “Your monetary gifts will assist us in providing toys, clothing, personal hygiene items and food to over 700 needy Decatur County children this Christmas. Without the long-standing support of our caring community, Cheer Fund would cease to exist. We appreciate everyone who has donated in the past and who will donate throughout this year.”

Those who wish to donate to the Greensburg Daily News Cheer Fund can do so year-round by contacting the Daily News at 812-663-3111, or by visiting 135 S. Franklin Street, Greensburg.
