Henry County Health Center Associates have actively volunteered in the community with special events during the month of July. Associates were involved with the Henry County Fair and Mt. Pleasant Area Chamber’s Rock Around the Block, offering fun and informational activities for people of all ages.
HCHC was recently a sponsor for the Mt. Pleasant Area Chamber of Commerce Rock Around the Block. On July 21st, HCHC associates joined the public at Mt. Pleasant’s Central Park to provide information about health center departments, services and programs. Departments also created games for families to participate in and prizes were awarded. The life size “Operation” game, pictured at right and made by HCHC’s Maintenance Department, was a big hit with kids of all ages as was the hand washing game built by Environmental Services that is also pictured!
HCHC and Healthy Henry County Communities participated in this year’s Henry County Fair Kids Fun Day held the afternoon of Saturday, July 15. HCHC had various games for the kids to participate in, while HHCC provided healthy treats. The event was a success as several families enjoyed all the different activities offered that day out at the fair grounds at McMillan Park. During the week of the Henry County Fair, Healthy Henry County Communities sponsored a healthy food booth daily, giving fair attendees healthy food options and promoting wellness among children and adults. HCHC Emergency Medical Services also provided EMS support at the Fair’s Demolition Derby.
All of these events are great examples of how HCHC gives back to our community. As a community health center, HCHC believes in the importance of being active in Henry County and showing support for important events such as those held in July. Throughout the year, HCHC Associates can also be found working in area school district concession stands, volunteering at the Mt. Pleasant Festival of Lights, and picking up litter on the highway adopted by HCHC.
