3m Gives Ccgh $30,000

November 25, 1990

A gift of $30,000 from 3M to Carroll County General joins $3.5 million the community hospital already has raised from the community to expand the building and services, said CCGH Executive Vice President Charles Graf.

The hospital's goal is to raise another $1.5 million from the community through individual and corporate donations.

The gift from 3M represents the largest for a plant its size in Carroll, said Suzanne Lee, director of the hospital's foundation. The plant in Westminster employs 73 people.

"The 3M Foundation recognizes the need for quality health-care institutions and that a wide range of related programs is essential for the continued growth and prosperity of the community," said Patrick Kotten, 3M plant manager.

The gift is actually a pledge over three years. The hospital already has $10,000, and will get another $10,000 a year for the next two years.

The capital campaign began last October and will continue through December. The foundation is conducting a phone-a-thon to raise money from residents.

Money raised in the campaign will go toward expanding services in cardiac care, surgery, obstetrics and the emergency department, and construction has already begun on expanding the building.
