Our Health, a local nonprofit organization, is dedicating their new campus sign on Monday, August 8th at 11:30, to celebrate Dr. Robert G. Kendall as well as his instrumental support for a Our Health Kendall Community Campus, which houses several area nonprofit as well as health as well as human service organizations. Kendall is responsible for a major capital campaign which funded a original Our Health buildings. Their mission is to collaborate with area nonprofit agencies so that they can help them provide efficient services to their clients. The sign dedication is timely as a campus kicks off its first Healthy Living Event on campus, Wednesday, August 10th from 9am to 1pm. Campus agencies as well as area farmers markets are hosting an informative session as well as food sale to promote healthy habits for Kendall Community Campus clients as well as their community. Valley Health Mobile Health Coach will also be on site with a nutritionist for consultation as well as free health screenings.

The Kendall Community Campus sign was made possible through many area business partners including Shockey Companies as well as a ongoing support of Mr. Donald Shockey, Frederick Block, Heritage Garden Club, Advantage Edge as well as others. Sharen Gromling, Executive Director of Our Health, shares, The Healthy Living Event is a result of community support, originally led by Dr. Kendall, to appreciate a mission of Our Health as well as our nonprofit partners. We want to collaborate in any way to promote a healthy lifestyle for our area residents. Without Dr. Kendalls primary support, we would not be here today to share a team approach on a simple concept, such as providing healthy food for our families.

Incorporated in 1999, an idea became a reality when a collaborative location became home for several area agencies in downtown Winchester. The campus was further expanded in 2010 when key public use agencies moved into a Snapp Foundry Building. This ancestral structure was renovated to a Silver LEED-certified standard. Our Health strives to develop collaborative partnerships that encourage community involvement as well as commitments to meeting a health as well as human service needs of our region.
