WINCHESTER — Lynne’s Club just got a bit bigger with the addition of 52 new members – and they are all staff, physicians and volunteers at Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH). Lynne’s Club is the WDMH Foundation’s monthly giving program that allows donors to donate to the hospital every month via automatic deductions from a bank account or credit card. It’s that simple to support patient care at WDMH.

“The Foundation put out a challenge to the WDMH team and they responded in full force,” says Kristen Casselman, the Foundation’s Managing Director. “Every day, these health professionals do a great job caring for patients and now the Foundation can do even more to support that care.”

In fact, with the addition of these new members, WDMH staff, volunteers and physicians now give almost $30,000 to WDMH each year via monthly giving alone. These gifts will be used to care for families by supporting the purchase of medical equipment, cancer care and the hospital’s highest priority needs.

The Club is named after Lynne Wilson, a former Managing Director of the Foundation, as a tribute to her service and vision. Lynne was with the Foundation from 2003 to June 2006, when she passed away from cancer. Her dedication to WDMH and its patients helped bring the dream of a new hospital to life, cementing local quality care for future generations.

Anyone can sign up for Lynne’s Club anytime. Giving is easy, convenient, safe and secure. Donors can choose an amount that fits their budget and the amount can be adjusted at any time. Donors receive special benefits and recognition.
