During its board meeting on Thursday, Dec. 3, House of Hope in Sayre accepted a donation of $50,000 from the Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital Auxiliary.
House of Hope Resident Manager Elizabeth Hibbard said, “The Axillary's generous gift will help House of Hope keep its doors open to welcome families in their time of need. They are helping take care of this home away from home for people in a medical crisis.”
The Sayre House of Hope is a residence that provides family-centered lodging to patients and their loved ones while receiving medical treatment at Guthrie.
Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital Auxiliary Board Chair Joan McCarty presented the check and added, “We are so happy to have been able to do this for the House of Hope and we hope to continue our support in the future.”
