Camden Clark Medical Center fundraiser receives $50K from Tri State Roofing
PARKERSBURG — A Parkersburg company has made a major donation to WVU Medicine Camden Clark Medical Center to buy a new ultraviolet light germ-zapping robot.
Tri-State Roofing and Sheet Metal Co. has contributed $50,000 through its Spartan Foundation.
“We are proud to contribute to the health and safety of patients and staff at WVU Medicine Camden Clark, especially now, and to give back to an organization that has been the healthcare provider to the Mid-Ohio Valley community we both have served for nearly a century,” said Jason Lewis of Tri-State.
The hospital’s dollar-match fundraising campaign has been underway since May to raise money to buy an additional XENEX Light Strike Germ-Zapping Robot. These state-of-the-art ultraviolet light-based cleaning machines offer the first disinfection system of its kind to deliver intense germicidal action proven to deactivate the SARS COV-2 (COVID-19) virus.
“We greatly appreciate the support from Tri-State and the spirt of its donation. This contribution is the largest made in this campaign, and has helped us accelerate the acquisition of another XENEX unit,” said Steve Altmiller, president and CEO of Camden Clark. “Providing excellent healthcare to the communities we serve is our highest priority, and this generous gift allows us to continue those efforts by adding another of these one-of-a-kind disinfection devices.”
The donation, with other contributions from the community, will be doubled through a dollar-for-dollar match by the Camden Clark Foundation’s employee campaign fund.
Tri-State is part of the Tri-State/Service Roofing & Sheet Metal Group, a and mechanical contractor and sheet metal fabricator for 97 years. The company has 13 locations serving commercial, institutional and industrial customers throughout the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest.
