NEWTON, NJ — The Newton Memorial Hospital Foundation (NMHF) announced a personal gift from the principals of Chant Realtors, Davis Chant, Pete Helms and John Schmitt, to the Pike County Health Fund, which assists uninsured and underinsured residents of Pike County to obtain vital screening and diagnostic services.

The fund is an important part of the $6 million capital campaign launched by NMHF in October, 2002. To date, more than $190,000 has been pledged to the local fund and more than $5 million has been pledged to the overall capital campaign.

Michael Dickerson and Joseph Biondo chair the local fund; both men are respected residents of the area and have stepped forward to assemble an impressive group of leaders to work towards the local fund’s goal of $250,000. When this goal has been reached, the Newton Memorial Hospital Foundation will invest the money and match the interest earned over a three-year period.

The partners of Chant Realtors were helpful in getting the Milford Health and Wellness Center started and they continue to be major supporters of the center not only through their gift, but in their personal interest in the success of the facility.

On behalf of Helms and Schmitt, Chant said, “I want to thank the Newton Memorial Hospital and its foundation for the concern it has shown for all of our families and friends’ wellness and quality of life through the services offered at the center.”

The Milford Health and Wellness Center Health Education Conference Room will be named in honor of Chant’s, Helms’ and Schmitt’s parents.
