Holzer would like to recognize recent donors of the Merry Christmas sign, located on top of the Gallipolis Medical Center. Robin Fowler, State Farm Insurance in South Point, Ohio and John Schmitt, State Farm Insurance in Gallipolis, Ohio were gracious enough to donate the funds needed to purchase a new sign.

“We are very grateful to our donors, Robin and John. This is an excellent example of two Foundations partnering to benefit Holzer Health System and our local community,” stated Linda Jeffers-Lester, Holzer Heritage Foundation.
As with many corporate organizations, State Farm has a charitable foundation, State Farm Companies Foundation Matching Gift Program, in that employees’ charitable contributions to 501c3 charitable organizations can be matched dollar for dollar. Fowler and Schmitt’s gift to Holzer Heritage Foundation along with the funds through State Farm Companies Foundation Matching Gift Program, provided the funding to replace the sign.
“We are honored to give to Holzer,” stated Fowler. “This donation is something that not only the staff, but all of our communities can enjoy throughout the holiday season.”
“Holzer is such a benefit to our communities, and we are pleased to be able to assist with this type of request,” stated Schmitt. “Donating through the Foundation is something I would encourage all of our businesses to look into.”
