CRAIG — A donation of $5,000 helped solidify a new year of fundraising by Memorial Regional Health Foundation in support of building a new medical office building next to the hospital in Craig.
The donation was made Wednesday, Jan. 9, at MRH by MSG Ready Mix business partners and siblings Dan and Katie Conrado.
MSG Ready Mix, which makes concrete for the construction industry, was founded in 1981 and expanded to Craig in 2003.
“We are really proud to be able to give back to the communities where we live and work,” said Katie, company vice president.
They have supplied material for MRH construction projects at the Rapid Care Clinic and new office building.
“We are the only locally-owned ready mix company in the Yampa Valley,” said Dan, company president.
He explained knowing a large number of businesses have donated to support the project motivated them to become supporters.
The MRH Foundation capital campaign kicked off in January 2018 with a goal of raising $1 million locally. Director Eva Peroulis said on Wednesday that they have raised a little more than $881,000.
The fundraising effort is expected to run until August when the new building is expected to open for service.
“It’s a huge undertaking. They are close, and we were happy to be part of it,” Dan said.
