Conemaugh Health System launches yearlong 'kindness' campaign

Johnstown, Pa.-based Conemaugh Health System committed to delivering 130 acts of kindness to the communities it serves over the next year in celebration of its 130th anniversary, according to The Tribune Democrat.

For its first two acts of kindness, employees donated $70,000 to a local United Way chapter, and executives donated $250 each to 35 schools and gave students full access to the health system's health and fitness programs, according to the report. The programs include weight loss challenges, 10,000 Steps activity programs and others.

Conemaugh was founded after the Johnstown Flood of 1889 destroyed swaths of the city. Red Cross founder Clara Barton set up a post to help those affected by the flood, and the site grew into Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center.
