We celebrated our 10,000th recipient with two picnics this fall. Over 200 people came to enjoy lunch provided by UPMC Horizon and to listen to the music of Max Schang on guitar! Three lucky attendees won prizes.
“We are celebrating the fact that we have now, this year, helped over 10,000 people in this area to obtain needed medical equipment,” explained Jackie Bonier, Executive Director of the UPMC Horizon Community Health Foundation. “The Foundation is pleased to support this program and is committed to helping the next 10,000 people and beyond!”
Kateri Linn, MERP Coordinator said, “It was great to see so many of our committee members, recipients and those who promote our program. The support for MERP is unbelievable!”
Jodi and Tully White, have spent the last 13 years volunteering to fix lift chairs attended the Farrell picnic. “We enjoy volunteering behind the scenes to make MERP a success!” Jodi said.
We are grateful to all the staff, volunteers and donors who are to be credited for the success of MERP.
