WADENA — The Tri-County Health Care Foundation awarded $13,000 in grants to local organizations.
These grants are created using the revenue-generating funds at the Minnesota Foundation. This allows Tri-County Health Care to take a percentage of the equity each year to distribute in the form of gifts.
The obstetric department at Tri-County Health Care was awarded a $2,000 grant from the fund. This funding will be used to purchase a birthing stool to aid patients through the labor process. Funds will also go toward new towels, gowns and at-home kits that contain essentials for the first few days of parenthood.
All recipients:

  • TCHC Obstetrics - $2,000
  • Friendly Rider Free Summer Youth Transportation - $500
  • Deer Creek Fire and Rescue - $1,300
  • Children’s Dental Services - $1,000
  • Bertha-Hewitt Community Education Babysitting Program - $200

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
