Believing it’s more blessed to give than to receive, the Hutterian Brethren Church of Crystal Lake donated 2-thousand dollars to the Health Foundation.
“We are very happy to contribute to our local healthcare and contribute to the communities around us,” said George Hofer, Manager of the Hutterian Brethren Colony of Crystal Lake in a statement. “We live in this area and have this philosophy that says if we possibly could we should contribute to our area and try to make it a better place.”
“This is a very generous donation and it comes at a great time,” said Ross Fisher, Executive Director of The Health Foundation. “We are hoping to raise the money for this microscope by the end of this year, and we are getting closer. Lab equipment is very important for healthcare; lab tests will usually provide the first indications if something is wrong, or if a person has risk factors that should be looked into.”
Fisher adds they’re hoping to pool all the money together to make bulk purchases of the equipment rather than buying them individually.
