LANCASTER, Ohio (May 15, 2012) – April is National Child Abuse Awareness Month, a time to recognize that we each can play a part in promoting the social and emotional well-being of children and families in our community.
On April 16, Sky Gettys, Fairfield Medical Center chief financial officer, and Melinda Van Buren, Emergency Department assistant manager, signed a commitment form on behalf of FMC to provide assistance to the Child Advocacy Center of Fairfield County at a ceremony held at Rising Park in Lancaster. Dave and June Harcum are also strong supporters of this cause. They were present during the ceremony and continue to give on behalf of the Child Advocacy Center.
“We were glad to be a part of this ceremony and will continue to support the Center in any way we can,” said Gettys. There were many other community members present to make this commitment, in addition to FMC and the Harcums. The ceremony specifically focused on ways to help families in our area by promoting more awareness.
The Center has seen more than 960 children and more than 30,000 are involved in the prevention program. “Fairfield Medical Center is a vital partner in keeping children safe by providing us with the office space for the center,” said Lisa DeGeeter, Child Advocacy Center of Fairfield County executive director. “Without their support, we wouldn’t be able to help children heal from the trauma of abuse.”
