Health Awareness Department

 

The Purpose of the Health Awareness department is to educate Grange and Community members about major health issues and prevention.


What Health Issues are prominent in your Grange and Community? Do you have Grange or Community members that are affected by Cancer, Heart Disease, Hearing Loss, Alzheimer’s, etc? Subordinate and Pomona Health Awareness chairmen are encouraged to explore what issues are affecting their community and see if there are any needs your Grange can meet. Does someone need a sitter, ride to an appointment, a hot meal, a listening ear, groceries picked up…? Chairmen are encouraged to work with the Community Service Chairmen in deciding how you can best serve your members
and community.

  • Sponsor a family in need. Schedule members to take turns.
  • Assist with a benefit for a local individual who is facing a major health issue.
