Thank you to all our sponsors, golfers and volunteers who helped the UPMC Horizon Community Health Foundation hold one of its most successful golf outings yet!  The sky was threatening at times, but it didn’t stop over 100 golfers from taking to the course and having a great time while supporting a great cause!

We are excited to announce the Farrell MERP is moving to a new location.  In July, the MERP behind UPMC Horizon’s Farrell Campus will be moving to its new location on the corner of Sharon-New Castle Road in Farrell.  If you have visited the Farrell MERP within the last few years, you noticed how crammed it was!  “We simply outgrew the facility we were in about two years ago and had to start renting storage containers and storing equipment outside,” explains Kateri Linn, the MERP Coordinator.

The new building at 707 Sharon-New Castle Road in Farrell, PA, offers over 7,000 square feet of space, plenty of room for an appropriate cleaning area, workshop and intake area.  Kateri explained, ‘The walls are finally going up and we can visualize how much space we are going to have for equipment repairs, cleaning and storage and it is exciting!  We can’t wait to get moved in and start operating out of our new space!”  Now, more than ever, we need the financial support of our community.  Please consider a donation today!

Thank you to all the UPMC Horizon Farrell Hospital employees who joined us at our “block party” on
Friday, March 24.  Aside from the delicious cookies and pizza bites, there were great giveaways and a contest!

Employees could try to guess how many pieces of equipment were loaned through our MERP in fiscal year 2016.  Guesses ranged from 89 – 15,000!  MERP loaned 3,720 pieces of equipment, so the lucky winner, who guessed 4,000 got to choose either a jumbo UPMC chocolate bar, a camp chair or a jacket.

The great thing about the block party was that we were able to talk about the great things our foundation is doing to over 100 UPMC employees.  We hope to participate in the UPMC Horizon Greenville block party within the next few months, so look for us there!

Our Healthy Habits program was in full swing this January when about 45 eighth graders enjoyed a field trip to Thyme in Your Kitchen in Sharon, PA to learn how to cook healthy meals at home.  Thyme in Your Kitchen helped to sponsor this program that taught eighth grade students from Farrell Schools some easy meals with readily available ingredients.  Students learned how to create healthy quesadillas, make hand-made egg noodles and chicken noddle soup, and create some desserts that were nutritious.  Each student received an apron and a personal cookbook.  Students loved the class where they learned how to measure ingredients, properly chop vegetables, saute, boil and bake.  “I went home and made quesadillas for my brother and sisters right away.  We had fun making our own creations,” said one student.  Just one week later, three other students had already made quesadillas at home and several had made the egg noodles for their families.  The cooking class was added as a trial this year and the students overwhelmingly agreed that it is a keeper!
