A Chapman second grader’s generosity became the center of attention at Geary Community Hospital. Gracen Gfeller was recognized Dec. 31 at a press conference where Frank Corcoran, GCH chief executive officer, thanked him for his donation of $13.96 cents to help the hospital buy supplies. Corcoran and several staff members matched Gracen’s donation raising an additional $427.92. Upon the request of community members who would also like to donate, GCH set up the Gracen Gfeller Supply Fund. People who would like to contribute can mail donations to: Geary Community Hospital memo: Gracen Gfeller Fund, C/O: Ashley King, 1102 St Mary’s Rd Junction City, KS 66441. (Courtesy photos)
