Altus Emergency Center in Lumberton has a program named Altus Gives. This program is managed by the staff of Altus. Each month, they choose an organization or cause to support. For the month of April, they decided to give their time and put their donations toward a project for the Village Creek Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.
Altus contacted the nursing center asking what they would like and they said they would like help improving their courtyard. Altus staff raised money to buy a bench, a lime tree, a lemon tree, and some potted herbs to plant in the courtyard. Bradley Jackson, Assistant Administrator with Altus, said the center has some active seniors who would appreciate the chance to do some gardening.
