April 8, The Ozark Health Foundation Phone-a-thon: The Ozark Health Foundation is hosting a phone-a-thon campaign on Thursday, April 8. Their goal is to raise $10,000 for the purchase of two patient lifts for Ozark Health Nursing & Rehab Center. The lifts are medical devices used to comfortably and safely transfer a resident from one position or location to another. The lifts not only ensure safe transfer for patients but also a safer working environment for employees.

We need your assistance to make the campaign a success. Would you or someone in your company be willing to volunteer as a team captain? We have listed a few important items for your review below that will help make the campaign a success. Without generous people like you and your team members, this event would not be possible.

We will be sending additional correspondence as we get closer to the event.

Recruit at least five (5) volunteer callers who are willing to submit names and phone numbers of twenty (20) individuals they are willing to call and ask for donations.

The team captain or a designee will attend the phone-a-thon event at Ozark Health on Thursday, April 8th, from 5-7:30 p.m. to make and answer calls during a live radio remote and Facebook Live event.

Team members can make calls April 6-8, but we request you save some names for the team captain or designee to contact during the live event.

If your organization is willing to answer the call to volunteer today, please contact us at 745-9714 or email or
