CULLMAN – The Alabama Nursing Home Association (ANHA) on Tuesday presented disaster assistance checks to four employees of Woodland Village Rehab & Healthcare Center. Each employee’s car suffered damage when severe weather swept through the area March 19, 2018.

“These individuals dedicate their lives to caring for the residents and patients at Woodland Village,” ANHA president & CEO Bill O’Connor said. “This financial assistance is one way we can help them recover from the storm and enable them to continue their important work.”

The checks total more than $1,500 and will cover the cost of replacing damaged windows in the employees’ vehicles. The funds were provided through the ANHA Education Foundation’s Disaster Benevolence Fund. The ANHA Education Foundation is a public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Disaster Benevolence Fund is supported by the generous contributions of ANHA members.
