IU Health Starke Hospital to Help Knox Elementary PTO with Playground Project

This pile of mulch is just one that IU Health Starke Hospital volunteers will be helping the PTO with today

IU Health Starke Hospital employees will be participating in the third annual Day of Community Service event today at the Knox Elementary School. The staff members will work with the Knox Elementary PTO to assist with landscape upgrades to the playground facilities at the school.

The project will begin at 7:00 a.m. today. The Hospital gave the PTO $3,000 to buy mulch and two semi loads of mulch was delivered to the school this week for the project. The PTO purchased an additional $1,000 worth of mulch to fully complete upgrading the playground facilities.

More than 1,500 employees throughout the IU Health system will participate in a community service project at a playground or active space in communities throughout the state.
