Guthrie Troy Community Hospital Building Healthier Communities Campaign Salutes Claverack Rural Electric Cooperative

Sayre, PA – As the Troy area community, health care providers and staff of the Guthrie Troy Community Hospital enjoy their first months in the new facility, Guthrie would like to take a moment to recognize Claverack Rural Electric Cooperative for their support of the Guthrie Troy Community Hospital Building Healthier Communities Campaign.

“We are pleased to be able to offer our support to the Guthrie Troy Community Hospital, which benefits so many residents throughout our region,” said Bobbi Kilmer, president and CEO of Claverack Rural Electric Cooperative. “One of our core principles as an electric cooperative is ‘concern for the community,’ and this donation is one of the ways we wish to honor our commitment to the local community.”

Claverack Rural Electric Cooperative has donated $1,000 to Guthrie Troy Community Hospital with a generous $1,000 matching gift made by giving partner CoBank. Based in Denver, Colo., CoBank offers matching funds for their cooperative customers in support of the rural economies they serve such as Troy, Pa.

“We’d like to thank Claverack and CoBank for their generous contributions,” said Jane Smith, Guthrie's Annual Giving and Fundraising Event Coordinator. “Donations such as this show the generosity of our local community and make many services offered at the new Guthrie Troy Community Hospital possible.”

Donations are still being accepted for the Guthrie Troy Community Hospital Building Healthier Communities Campaign. For more information or to make a contribution, please contact the Guthrie Resource Development office at 570-887-4420 or visit
