We are excited to share the news that the Friends of MERP, which supports the Foundation’s Medical Equipment Recycling Program, has received a grant of $15,000 from the Almira Foundation, which provides aid to children and the elderly throughout Lawrence County, Pennsylvania. Representatives from the Community Foundation of Western PA and Eastern OH visited the MERP location in Farrell on December 13th to tour the facility and deliver the check. The Friends of MERP Board of Directors formally accepted the grant on December 14th. The grant will be used to purchase and refurbish medical equipment that can be loaned through MERP to residents of Lawrence County.
The Foundation thanks the Almira Foundation, the Community Foundation of Western PA and Eastern OH, and the Friends of MERP for their generous support of MERP and the community members it serves.
