Luther Home of Mercy, an intermediate care facility for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities, will break ground on the $1.5 million Ginny’s Kitchen, the largest capital improvement project on the Williston campus in many years.
Working to enhance care and meet future needs, Luther Home of Mercy is building a state of the art kitchen and central storage facility. This up-to-date building will enable the Luther Home of Mercy to replace outdated equipment and systems built in the 1960s and renovated in 1970, and further modernize processes. In addition, the structure will boast much needed storage space for medical supplies.
On his 95th birthday, Richard (Dick) Feusse and his family stepped forward to provide a “Champions” level sponsorship toward the construction of the new building complete with new stoves, refrigeration and walk-in freezers. Named in memory of matriarch Ginny Feusse, Ginny’s Kitchen will have a central loading dock for deliveries and allow staff to improve food distribution process to each of their eight residential cottages.
According to Feusse, “Ginny was always a great cook and spent many hours in her home kitchen and also the kitchens for church. God has been very good to our family and we know that this gift will help continue the wonderful care the residents receive at Luther Home.”
The project is financed by GenoaBank with Virtual Design Group, Wasserstrom Kitchen and Dotson Construction working together to bring this plan to life.
