Consider the solitary raindrop. We might not think it’s powerful. But that single drop, joining many others just like it, can fill rivers and sustain life.
The examples of two inspiring individuals remind me how, together, we have the “power of one” to change our community for the better.
For nine years, one extraordinarily generous man has led Good Samaritan Hospital’s Board of Trustees through transformative change and growth to serve our Mission. We can’t thank Ned Sifferlen enough for all he has given to our hospital, physicians and patients. We will miss his insight and enthusiasm.
And one extraordinarily generous woman has ensured that pregnant teens, seniors and the homeless will continue to receive critical health services. In their lifetime, Don and Margaret Penny helped Dayton thrive with their successful Penny Motors.
With Margaret’s death in 2011, both are now gone. But their legacy lives on in a $1.7 million gift to our foundation.
What will you do with your “power of one?”
