[December 19, 2015]  The Christian Village (TCV) recently received a $25,000 grant from Eaton Corp. This grant will benefit the Vision capital campaign which was started in early 2015. The campaign focuses on an expansion to TCV, which will now provide a full continuum of care for residents, making it the only such community in Logan County.

Allowing residents to remain on the campus even when their healthcare needs change is very important to the care of each individual. The expansion includes several significant construction projects including: an Assisted Living Garden Villa, a new Rehab-to-Home wing, renovations of “Hope Hall” and a new entrance and lobby to the nursing home. Also, the independent living apartments and garden homes will be updated.

TCV administrator Jo Hilliard expresses her gratitude, “The support of our community means a great deal to us. The Eaton Corporation believes in community and this grant is a very tangible expression of their spirit of giving. We thank God for their encouragement.”

This grant was secured through the Eaton Charitable Fund, which supports the communities in which Eaton does business across the globe. The Eaton manufacturing operation in Lincoln has been in operation for over 50 years, and employs 700 people currently. The plant produces power distribution devices which are used in residences across the United States, including loadcenters, metering devices and air conditioning disconnects. Eaton is a power management company with 2014 sales of $22.6 billion.
