Russell Gifts Help Support Piedmont Mountainside Hospital

Mr. Don RussellMr. Don Russell, founder of the Community Thrift Store, & the Pickens County Community Resource Association, has made gifts totaling $45,000 in support of Piedmont Mountainside Hospital in Jasper, GA. His support to date has included funding for both the Parks Flo-Lab, a noninvasive vascular system with high sensitivity to provide accurate and swift diagnoses in those with chest pain and cardiovascular treatment; and the Zeiss electron microscope, a tremendous tool to increase safety and ease of breast cancer surgery, as well as other types of surgeries.

In gratitude of this outstanding support and generosity, Piedmont Mountainside has named its Chest Pain Center in honor of Mr. Russell. At a surprise ceremony for Mr. Russell, arranged by his wife, Mary, he was quoted as saying, “God brought Mary and I here 20 years ago, and He had some ideas. I have been able to hang around and see them completed.” Russel credited the 200 volunteers for the Thrift Store’s continued success and ability to serve the community through giving. A plaque in honor of Mr. Russell has been installed in the Chest Pain Center.
