Rotary Club contributions buy equipment for Fruita hospital

The Rotary Clubs of Fruita and Grand Junction, along with the 5740 Rotary Foundation, contributed more than $6,000 to the Family Health West Foundation to purchase equipment for a rehabilitation program.

The $6,460 gift will be used to purchase specialized gym equipment for the pediatric rehabilitation sensory program at the Colorado Canyons Hospital & Medical Center in Fruita. The program helps those experiencing difficulty as a result of sensory concerns related to movement, noise, smells, touch and vision.

“It is our honor to support such an important program in Mesa County,” said Abby Landmeier, president of Fruita Rotary. “Knowing that families who desperately need this specialized therapy can stay in their hometown is heartwarming and helpful with their treatment. And to partner with the Grand Junction club is just icing on the cake.”
