Baseball and Bucks for the Betterment of a Community Hospital donates $250 to Fair Haven via WCHS Varsity Baseball

Wayne Memorial Hospital recently gave Fair Haven Shelter $250 in honor of the Wayne County High School Varsity Baseball Team’s performance this past season.

Janet Keith, Executive Assistant to the hospital CEO and CFO, said, “It is an honor and privilege to have served as a Fair Haven Board Member and to be employed by Wayne Memorial Hospital – a place that not only serves the residents of Wayne County, but gives back to the community on many different levels. At the beginning of the WCHS baseball season, Wayne Memorial again committed to partnering with the Varsity baseball team in order to support Fair Haven in a creative and unique way. We, at the hospital, are thankful to have a facility in Wayne County as a safe haven for victims of domestic violence as they seek help and change from a negative environment to a positive one for themselves and their children.”

Wayne County High School’s Baseball Coach Justin McDonald remarked, “This partnership is a great way for us as a baseball program to give back to organizations in our area. We’ve received so much support for our program and players over the years from this community. A special thank you to Joe Ierardi and Wayne Memorial Hospital, for bringing our team and Fair Haven together in this special way. And I also have to recognize the players for their outstanding performances this year. We’re all looking forward to next year’s donation.”

Dana Mathis, Executive Director of Fair Haven, shared, “We are grateful at Fair Haven for this donation and will put it towards our Children’s Program. The program helps kids heal and recover from exposure to domestic violence via age-appropriate activities such as play, art and creative movement. Thank you to both organizations for recognizing this need in our community as we all work together to strengthen it.”
Fair Haven is a 12-bed facility that focuses on giving victims of domestic violence a safe place to heal while providing the resources to begin a new life. If you or someone you love is a victim of domestic violence, call Fair Haven at 912-588-9999.
