History of Giving

A HISTORY OF GIVING


In 1965, the Alpha Charter Guild’s donation to the Antelope Valley Hospital was a single wheelchair for orthopedic patients. In 1978, it was $1,801 for the Coronary Care Unit. Through the decades, the Alpha Charter Guild has met the challenge of the ever-increasing need and cost for medical equipment and services to better the lives of Valley residents.

Earlier this year, the Alpha Charter Guild was proud to present one of our largest contributions, $45, 500 to the Antelope Valley Hospital Foundation.
