St. Francis Receives Grant for New Bus
St. Francis Home is anxiously awaiting the arrival of their new 15 passenger accessible bus. With the generous grant award of $20,000 from the Allen Eiry Fund, managed by the Columbus Foundation, St. Francis Home was able to order this bus back in October. The St. Francis Senior Ministries Memorial Foundation, supported thru many private donors, assisted with over $20,000 of the remaining costs associated with the purchase.
Reineke Family Dealership is coordinating this purchase and the installation of the accessibility features through a vendor in Michigan. This bus will replace an older bus that was in need of several repairs. Residents are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new bus so they can continue to participate in community events in and around the Tiffin area.
Thanks to all the donors – private and foundations – that were able to contribute to resolve this need at St. Francis Home! For more information on opportunities to partner with St. Francis Community, please visit the website at www.sfctiffin.org.

St. Francis Home Receives Check
St. Francis Community and St. Francis Senior Ministries’ staff and residents graciously accepted an award of $1000 for medical equipment needed at St. Francis Home. Teri Lease and Steve Fruth of the North Central Electric People Fund presented the check to Elizabeth Fox, Director of Nursing at St. Francis Home.
The People Fund of North Central Electric Cooperative raises funds each month through “Operation RoundUp” by rounding up their electric bills from voluntary member…s to the next whole dollar. “It is a great partnership with matching missions of two local organizations together, both helping those in need,” says Ann Keefe, Grants Writer for St. Francis Community. “It is really amazing how a few cents from each member participating, can add up to significant community contributions,” said Lease. Over 500 such community donations have been made throughout the years to various organizations across the region.
