Greencroft Goshen raises more than $3M for capital campaign

GOSHEN — At a reception on Tuesday, more than 100 people gathered at the Greencroft Goshen Community Center to celebrate reaching the $3 million fundraising goal for the community’s upcoming health care renovation project.

The capital campaign was titled “Transforming Lives.” Greencroft officials said the goal was exceeded, with more than $3.135 million raised for the project to date from 500 donors.

The project will feature the construction of a new two-story, 64-bed health care facility utilizing a “neighborhood” concept for residents, who will live in one of four households in the new building. The project also features a “Main Street” area in the existing facility that will include a new information center at a new entrance, a library, café, store, wellness center, sitting areas, a beauty and barber shop, offices and a new chapel/community room. Other areas of the current building, which was constructed in 1971, will also be renovated.

The reception featured light refreshments and a brief presentation and project update. Capital campaign co-chairmen Everett Thomas and Burl Troyer hosted the presentation, which included expressions of appreciation and gratitude to those involved on various campaign committees, as well as for all those who made financial contributions.

Also speaking were Sandra Yoder, the senior vice president of health care services at Greencroft Goshen, and Mark King, the president and chief executive officer of Greencroft Communities.

Joe Schrock, the director of maintenance at Greencroft Goshen, gave the project update.

The contributions came from Greencroft Goshen and Greencroft Communities’ staff members, residents and board members, as well as from individuals and businesses in the community. Donations to the “Transforming Lives” capital campaign project ranged from $4 to $350,000.

A groundbreaking ceremony is being planned for late August. Construction will also begin in August. It is anticipated that the new facility will open in early 2015.
