Mammoth Spring Schools donate to OMC Foundation
First-time donation raised at Bears’ Pink Out Game activities
The Mammoth Spring Bears have made a first-time donation to the Ozarks Medical Center (OMC) Foundation benefiting the Cancer Patient Emergency Fund.
The gift, totaling $1,518.83, was the sum of various fundraising activities held at Mammoth Spring Bears Pink Out Games. Activities included; gate proceeds from one of the games, sales of cookies and cupcakes, and two separate Miracle Minutes during sporting events. This gift will go to helping cancer patients that are being treated at OMC who call Mammoth Spring or Thayer home.
“We feel like there is a great need in our area for additional support for patients during their cancer treatments. We have had several teachers and parents in our district effected by cancer as it is becoming such a prominent disease and we want to do what we can to help,” said Ms. Jennie Whisnant, school superintendent. She went on to say “We would like to issue a challenge to all other Fulton and Oregon County schools to do what they can to raise funds for cancer patients being treated in our own backyards.”
The Ozarks Medical Center Foundation, established in 1998 as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) with a local board of directors, serves as a liaison between the donor and OMC to assist the hospital in providing excellent healthcare to the communities it serves.
