DEAF SMITH COUNTY, Texas (KFDA) - L’Allegra plans to donate $50,000 to the Deaf Smith County Hospital District.

There will be a presentation of the donation on Thursday, January 14 at 1:30 p.m. in front of the hospital.

“We are so immensely grateful for L’Allegra’s continued support and generosity,” said Jeff Barnhart, CEO of the Deaf Smith County Hospital District. “We know there are many causes worthy of support in our community, and we are honored that L’Allegra chooses our health care system for their philanthropy.”

Last year, the hospital used the $22,000 donation from L’Allegra to purchase equipment to help COVIVD-19 patients. The donation provided the funds to purchase six additional vapotherm machines that deliver high-velocity oxygen and help patients avoid intubation and mechanical ventilation.

“L’Allegra is delighted to support our local hospital,” said Tamara Vogel, Project Christmas Card Chair, L’Allegra. “Over the last year, we’ve all seen how important it is to have a strong health care system, and Deaf Smith County Hospital District is essential for the health and well-being of our community. It’s our pleasure to make this donation.”
