Watkins Glen Elks Make Donation to Schuyler Hospital Foundation


Schuyler Hospital and Cayuga Health officials recently received a charitable donation of $5,000 for the Schuyler Hospital Foundation for Seneca View Skilled Nursing Facility at Schuyler Hospital.

“We are so fortunate to have the ongoing consideration of our local and National Elks organizations. Watkins Glen Elks Club has always supported our community and our hospital,” states, Kimberly Sprague, Director of Schuyler Health Foundation. “Our Seneca View Skilled Nursing Facility is home to so many residents of the local community. They will certainly benefit greatly from this thoughtful donation.”

Over the past four years, the Elks have donated $17,000 to Schuyler Hospital for various needs. The donation stems from a grant written by the Watkins Glen Elks Lodge #1546 grant passed through the National Elks Association, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the U.S.A., known as the Grand Lodge.

“Our organizations are focused on increasing the quality of community and spirit of Watkins Glen and greater Schuyler County,” said Watkins Glen Elks Lodge Treasurer, Tom Phillips. “As Elks, we take great pride in knowing we can support those in need in our community.” Phillips is also a member of the Schuyler Health Foundation Board of Directors.
