GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Community Hospital takes time to honor one of its loyal supporters, The Fraternal Order of the Eagles, with a naming plaque. Grand Junction’s chapter of this international nonprofit has a reputation for helping people.

So far, over $26,000 of the Eagles’ fundraising supports Community Hospital’s programs and services. The hospital’s waiting room is named after the Eagles with a plaque serving as a token of gratitude.

After years of teamwork and relentless efforts, Eagles’ administration finds this milestone to be worth the wait.

“We love to raise money to help other charities and we love to give money away,” Cecilia Cruz-Inga shares, “The majority of our charities do here come to the Community Hospital so it’s an honor.”

The plaque is hung publicly for all visitors to see. For eagles, getting this honor doesn’t halt the group’s community service, it pushes the drive to continue giving back to the Grand Valley.
