Armstrong toasts healthcare
There’s a month left to participate in a coffee fundraiser to help Armstrong’s Haugen Community Healthcare Society.
The Coffee Party has been ongoing since April 11 and wraps up May 31.
“Our intention is to generate much needed financial support for the society, and increase public awareness of our community’s primary medical care services,” said Jannette Hayman of the society.
The society is inviting residents to host a coffee party to raise funds which will pay for extensive renovations and design of the Haugen Clinic.
Society members are looking for donations of $10 per guest during the fundraiser.
The Haugen society hosted the first coffee party featuring five guests with each guest given a package of 206 coffee party pamphlets to pass on. The initial five guests then became hosts for the second round of coffee parties.
The society has passed along some party hosting tips:
- Invite guest over for coffee, tea or other refreshments;
- Meet at a local coffee house;
- Hold an appetizer party and get your guests to bring a guest or two with them;
- Meet at a pub for wings and beverages;
- Host a card night.
