HRBT Foundation Strengthens Connection With Community Health

June 03, 2007

(Hudson NY)

The Hudson River Bank and Trust Co. Foundation has re-emphasized its strong connection with one of the most important local community assets in Columbia County by donating $24,000 to Columbia Memorial Hospital.  The grant is earmarked to support a new program entitled “Empowering the Community to be Partners in Health”, the primary goal of which is to promote and maintain the health of residents in the area through education and appropriate referral services.

“Support from local businesses, and especially the HRBT Foundation has had a significant impact on our success both in the past and now into the future.” noted Program Director Mary Daggett.  “We are now better able to continue our mission of providing wellness education and information within the communities we serve.”

Previous Community Health presentations offered by CMH in conjunction with this program have successfully encouraged members of the community to take chare of their own health and allow staff at CMH to be partners in care.  Topics that have received attention and interest through the Program have ranged from cardiovascular disease to tobacco cessation to diabetes.  For more information regarding the Program please contact Community Health Services at (518) 828-8013.

The Hudson River Bank & Trust Company Foundation was established in 1998 to provide financial support to nonprofit organizations.  The Foundation continues its charitable giving with an emphasis on education, youth development, arts and culture, historic preservation, health care, human services and community development.  For additional information regarding the grant application process, please contact Holly Rappleyea at (518) 671-6226 or visit our website at
