The Christian County Health Department was recently selected to receive $5,000 as one of the Bertrand Hooper Memorial Foundation Award Recipients. The money will go to help update the flooring in the front entrance and waiting area of the clinic area for Women, Infants and Children Program and Family Case Management Programs. The Health Department is also hopeful that they can receive other donations from the public so that the painting that needs to be done to the area can be completed at the same time as well.
The award greatly helps the Christian County Health Department’s efforts to renovate it’s facilities, due to the fact that the Department receives it’s funding through state grants, which cannot be used for building improvements. The lack of a state budget has also negatively affected the department’s funding overall, so the award from the Bertrand Hooper Memorial Foundation is a welcome sight for the Christian County Health Department.
