Ray speaks to Kiwanis Club

Ray speaks to Kiwanis Club

by | August 14, 2018 3:31 pm

   The Kiwanis Club of Swainsboro held its weekly meeting, Tuesday, July 31, at  7 p.m. at Catered Creations. With President Jim Clapham presiding, there were 21 members in attendance and one guest, Marty Ray. 

   The program for the evening was hosted by Linda Lamb.  Due to Atlanta traffic, Lamb was unable to attend, so Tim Goodman introduced Marty Ray, coordinator for public relations/foundation for Emanuel Medical Center (EMC). Ray was hired in 2016 to assist EMC to promote the Georgia HEART Hospital Program. The program was established to assist rural hospitals by giving a tax credit to Georgia taxpayers of up to $5,000 annually to support local hospitals. Taxpayers are able to take a state income tax deduction for the entire amount of their contribution. 

   In 2017, EMC received $243,489.81 and has $940,000 pledged in the 2018 tax year. Ray listed some of improvements made at EMC because of this funding. These include everything from setting up Ortho Care to provide injury scans without emergency room admission, updating of the x-ray capabilities, expansion of the senior behavioral health facilities, and setting up a vaccination program for school children. He also highlighted the increase and growth in the volunteer program, thanks in part to Juanita Porter, community care coordinator. A new website was also developed for EMC, and it now has a Facebook presence.   

   To become a member of the Swainsboro Kiwanis Club, please call membership chair Jane Durden at 478-494-4113, or email her at hsdurden@bellsouth.net. To find out more information about the club and the many community service projects it sponsors each year, visit their website at www.swainsborokiwanis.org or their Swainsboro Kiwanis Facebook page.
