Cattaraugus Gives Day
STHCS had great support on Cattaraugus Gives Day on Tuesday. Overall, during the 24-hour fundraising marathon graciously coordinated by the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation (CRCF), we received contributions from 26 unique donors. By receiving the most donations between 3 and 4 p.m., we secured the “Responsive Hour” award from CRCF. These gifts will help to support our EMS Simulation Lab, which will provide state-of-the-art training and education for emergency prehospital care in our region.
 
I’d like to congratulate all of the participating nonprofits. Collectively, the event raised just under $111,000 to champion wonderful missions that benefit our communities. I thank each of our donors for standing behind our lifesaving cause, and also the Community Foundation for again coordinating the day of giving. It’s a great way to kick off the Holiday Season.
'Moonshot'
On Monday, I participated in the Health Leadership Fellows CALL to Action. The goal by the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York (HFWCNY) is to develop initiatives with potential to turn the curve on barriers to achieving better health care and health outcomes for older adults and young children impacted by poverty. The Foundation provided each selected team with planning grants up to $10,000 to support the development of proposals for 24-month demonstration projects.
 
The goal is to remove barriers to improved health outcomes. The "moonshot" is that there would be a data collection and information-sharing system that would support community care planning by leveraging existing regional and community assets and by strengthening the social service ecosystem so we are able to collect data and report on the services that truly impact health equity. I’d like to thank the Health Foundation for its generosity and opening doors for impact throughout Western and Central New York.
