How Taste of Grand Helps Our Community
All proceeds from Taste of Grand benefit the INTEGRIS Foundation. A non-profit organization which improves the health of the people and communities it serves.
Thousands of dollars are donated to local citizens each year who are battling cancer. Funds are used to help with medical expenses, fuel for travel to treatment, nutritional supplements, medical supplies and other essential expenses.
PATIENT IN NEED FUND
Last year alone, $25,000 was distributed to people who could not afford to purchase necessary medications, medical equipment or other critical medical related needs. Funding is based on financial need and is available to patients of INTEGRIS Grove, or any physician or staff member.
TOWNSEND CHILDREN’S FUND
Through a generous gift from Ed and Barbara Townsend, this fund provides medical and dental care for needy children in Delaware County.
The foundation spent nearly $85,000 purchasing automatic defibrillators for area schools and senior centers. One of the AEDs purchased was used to save the life of a person during a community event.
The foundation also funds other local health needs from purchasing life changing medical equipment for hospital patients, to donating $6,000 to the Christian Medical Clinic for diabetic testing supplies for low income patients.
