Thanks to a $10,000 grant received from The Mary McClellan Foundation earlier this year, CWI’s Whipple City and Greenbridge Day Programs have completed purchases of a new lift system with accessories, medical equipment such as temporal artery thermometers, automatic digital blood pressure monitors as well as stethoscopes, multi-handled gait belts, IV poles and specialized furniture for the individuals served at these facilities. The Mary McClellan Foundation promotes and supports the health care needs of the community in the Towns of Cambridge, Easton, Greenwich, Jackson, Salem, and White Creek in Washington County and the Town of Hoosick in Rensselaer County, New York, by making grants to local non-profit organizations which directly or indirectly provide for the health care needs of the community. The Foundation emphasizes those needs, which have become more acute by reason of the closure of the Mary McClellan Hospital.
