Give a Heart Fundraiser another Success
With your help we were able to sell 365 hearts in Effingham and 151 in Mattoon. The bank matched the total sales of hearts which allowed us to donate $730 to the The Andrew Gobczynski Big Heart Foundation and $302 to the Sarah Bush Lincoln Heart Center.
The Andrew Gobczynski Big Heart Foundation has implemented a heart testing program for all sophomore student-athletes at Teutopolis, Effingham, and St. Anthony schools. This potentially life-saving testing will search for heart anomalies that are not found through regular physicals. The money raised will go towards the testing of student-athletes.
The Sarah Bush Lincoln Heart Center will use the funds to help those who struggle to pay for costs associated with treatment. Funds will help provide scales for patients without insurance who are being discharged with Heart Failure who need to monitor their weight at home.
