The Board of Directors of the Walton County Health Care Foundation is pleased to report a summary of our activities from 2011 through 2013. Since our inception in 2006, we have provided almost 1.5 million dollars in support of healthcare and wellness projects within Walton County, Georgia.

The Foundation continues to support government agencies and organizations that provide emergency assistance and health care services to the underserved in our community. During this grant cycle, we were pleased to be able to provide funding to purchase medical equipment and supplies for the newly established Faith In Serving Humanity Medical and Dental Clinic. This organization provides free medical and dental services for the uninsured who are below the 200th percentile of the federal poverty level.

We continue to support healthy lifestyles and proper nutrition within the community. Through leadership provided by the Walton Wellness, Inc. initiative, a community garden has been established in cooperation with the Walton County Sheriff's Department and community volunteers. Prisoners from the Walton County Jail along with volunteers plant, maintain and harvest vegetables that provide fresh produce for the F.I.S.H. Farmer's Market. Vouchers for the market are distributed by local agencies and offices to low income families. In 2013, the Farmer's Market was able to supply fresh produce to over 3500 individuals two times a week during the productive summer months.

Through support of activities like Project Road Share, Stretch Out Across Walton races, the Agro Cycle Tour and Streets In Motion we encourage active lifestyles for our youth and adults. In an effort to enhance the delivery of medical care within the community, our foundation has established financial assistance funds at area community colleges to assist students living in Walton County who are pursuing a career in health care.

The Walton County Health Care Foundation continues to seek opportunities to support viable initiatives that focus on enhancing the overall health of the Walton County community.

Sincerely yours,

T. Henry Wall, D.V.M., Chairman, CEO
