Holdrege Memorial Homes receives Community Grants totaling $65,000

Holdrege Memorial Homes has been awarded grants totaling $65,000 for renovations to the south area of the facility.

The Phelps County Community Foundation awarded $35,000 and the Roy W. and Mary L. Pearson Charitable Trust awarded $30,000 for the project.  The PCCF grant was made possible through the William and Margaret Richards Endowment Fund, the William and Margaret Richards Field of Interest Fund, and the PCCF Community Impact Fund.  HMH Administrator, Kevin Moriarty stated "We are grateful and appreciative of the generosity of the Phelps County Community Foundation and to the many individuals who support their mission.  Roy and Mary Pearson, through their endowment fund, continue to find a way of supporting Holdrege Memorial Homes and its mission.

"Community support of HMH was vital to the construction of our facility in 1953," he continued, "and   continues to be crucial to its operations some 65 years later.  This support is truly the difference between providing care and showing that we care."  Mr. Moriarty explained the renovation.  "Our south skilled nursing unit was originally constructed in the mid 1970's and serves as many as 30 residents.  The scope of work for this project includes dining improvements, enlarging public bathrooms to enable handicap accessibility and revisions to the south entrance."  Work for this project initiated around February 15 and is expected to be completed around July 1 of 2019.
