New Fund to Help Village at Brookwood Employees

The Alamance Regional Charitable Foundation has received a generous gift to help employees of the Village at Brookwood.

James H. Smith, Jr. and William H. Smith have started the Peggy H. Smith Village of Brookwood Employee Assistance Fund in memory of their mother, with a donation made in her name.

While most of the funds at the Alamance Regional Charitable Foundation traditionally serve patients at the hospital, the Peggy H. Smith Fund will aid employees of the Village at Brookwood who may be affected by an unforeseen catastrophe in his or her life.

The Smiths established the fund because they felt the care and service the retirement facility provided their mother was outstanding.

"The employees at the Village at Brookwood were a blessing during the last five years of our mother’s life. The work that the staff does there is so difficult and we are grateful for their care," said James H. Smith, Jr.

"Hospital stays are not what most people want to remember, but the care, compassion and kindness people receive while they are here often moves them to want to give back," said Katie Boon, Executive Director of the Alamance Regional Charitable Foundation.

Foundation funds meet a wide variety of patient needs, including assistance for new mothers and infants, children with asthma, patients and families facing cancer, seniors struggling to purchase medications, and many others.

Through the generosity of gifts like the new Peggy H. Smith Fund, the Charitable Foundation can continue to further the hospital’s mission to improve the health of the citizens of Alamance County and the surrounding communities.
