Three Loudonville-Perrysville organizations were selected to receive Community Support Awards from Samaritan Hospital Foundation.   L/P Community Support Awards are distributed annually by Samaritan Hospital Foundation to organizations and programs promoting health and wellness for people living in the Loudonville-Perrysville area. 

 The Village of Loudonville received a $2,000 Loudonville-Perrysville Community Support Award from Samaritan Hospital Foundation (SHF) to assist with the replacement of selected playground equipment and the addition of fall protective surface materials at Riverside Park.  The funds will also help restore some of the play equipment in need of repair.  Curtis Young, Village Administrator, received the check from Bev Spreng, Development Director at Samaritan Hospital Foundation.  

 The Community Help Mission was selected to receive a $1,500 Loudonville-Perrysville Community Support Award.  The funds will be used to assist clients with emergency medical needs and those suffering from chronic illness.  The Community Help Mission also offers programs which promote health and wellness.  The Community Help Mission exists to assist Loundonville-Perrysville residents (who meet eligibility criteria) in emergency situations.  Program Director, Diane Geiselman, and Karen McClure, treasurer for the organization were on hand to receive the check from Bev Spreng (SHF) and Cathy Conrad, L/P Community Support Award Committee member. 

 Bikes For Kids, an organization of volunteers from throughout the L/P community which provides bikes and helmets for children and adults and promotes bike safety and exercise awareness, received a $1,500 L/P Community Support Award from SHF.  The funds received will be used to purchase parts to refurbish donated used bikes and to buy helmets.  Currently, the program is providing bikes and helmets to any child or adult that makes a request and has assisted families with special needs who might need specialized bikes or equipment.   Volunteers Judy Burgess, Zslona Mosher and Al Seffens were at the Loudonville Public Library to receive the check from Bev Spreng.
