JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (WJHL) — Food City officials continued their annual support for Ballad Health Niswonger by donating $20,000 to Children’s Hospital Thursday morning.
The money was raised through the Food City Charity Golf Tournament. The annual event has been helping Ballad Health since 2010.
“Any time you can help your community, especially a large organization like Ballad Health Niswonger, it means the world,” said KVAT Store Manager Jason Johnson.
Every day, Ballad Hospital is tasked with providing relief and care to up to 16,000 children at the facility. On Thursday, Ballad Health Foundation President Jack Simpson expressed his appreciation for the recurring partnership.
“We have so many community partners ready to step in, whether it’s people who round up grocery shopping, through our Leopard campaign, people who donate a few dollars or donate a few dollars to the Radiothon. , or if its people making significant campaign commitments, we really couldn’t do it without our partners or our community,” Simpson said.
According to a statement, all funds will be used to support children at Niswonger Children’s Hospital.
