FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MASSENA—The New York Power Authority (NYPA) on Friday contributed $2,000 to Massena Memorial Hospital as part of the hospital’s annual fundraising drive.

Allen Schriver, NYPA’s regional manager for Northern New York, presented a check to Charles F. Fahd  II, Massena Memorial’s chief executive officer, at the hospital.

“On behalf of our employees at the St. Lawrence-FDR Power Project, I am delighted to continue our tradition of supporting Massena Memorial Hospital,” Schriver said.  “As members of the Massena community, we benefit from the vital services that the hospital provides and we welcome this opportunity to express our thanks.”

Fahd noted that “the Power Authority is a valued contributor to our hospital and we appreciate its ongoing support. Donors like NYPA make it possible for us to continually strengthen the quality of our care and facilities.”

In addition to its annual contributions, the Power Authority in 2003 donated $50,000 to Massena Memorial Hospital’s building fund.

The hospital’s annual fundraising drive coincides each year with National Hospital Week, which this year had the slogan “A Calling to Care.”
