McKee Medical Center Foundation receives $5000 grant from Safeway Foundation

LOVELAND (February 21, 2013) – The McKee Medical Center Foundation has accepted a grant for $5000 from the Safeway Foundation to provide support for cancer patients at the McKee Medical Center Cancer Center.

Julie Johnson Haffner, Executive Director of the McKee Medical Center Foundation accepted the award February 22 during a check presentation at the Broomfield Safeway location.

The McKee Medical Center Foundation was one of four chosen by three Safeway Districts to receive a portion of a $15,000 donation by Frito Lay.

The grant will ensure that under-insured, uninsured or cancer patients who do not have other resources will have access to transportation, prescriptions, and other living expenses while receiving cancer treatment at McKee Medical Center. The oncology social work navigators will identify and qualify patients for the grant. This project will help patients meet all of their household needs as they fight cancer.

For more information, contact Brooke Vander Wal at (970) 203-2503.

The McKee Medical Center Foundation raises funds and friends for the health and wellness of our community.
