  • When Georgeann Reffner and her husband, Rich, moved to Gadsden County a few years ago, she was sure of two things: she knew she would love small town living, and she wanted to give back.

    She soon began working at the Gadsden Community Hospital, where she put her many years of nursing experience to work. She was troubled by the great need she saw for medical supplies, both in the hospital and in the community.

    Reffner was working at the hospital when it closed in 2005, and she began once again to ask herself what she could do to give back to the community.
