GOAL ACHIEVED: Farmington Presbyterian Manor – GIVE. GATHER. GROW. Fundraising Campaign
Sowing Seeds of Love
Life is best lived when our horizons are constantly being expanded and each day is NURTURED and ENRICHED. We each have an innate need to connect with the world around us and those we share it. Unfortunately, when Farmington Presbyterian Manor was built in 1962, little space was allocated for gathering and ease of access to nature.
To remedy the problem, members of the Farmington community joined forces to create the GIVE. GATHER. GROW. Fundraising Campaign.
In the summer of 2020, this $1,250,000 campaign was successfully achieved to build a new 3,500 square-foot fellowship center – The Hull Family Fellowship Center.
Now complete, community members can hold everything from weekly worship services to anniversary parties, and enjoy an outdoor patio and garden area where residents can reconnect with nature and benefit from the healing and therapeutic effects of fresh air and sunshine.
Thanks to a generous, $1 million lead gift from an anonymous donor, and other amazing donors our vision has been fulfilled. Thank you!

Residents and staff continue to benefit from grants

Thanks to a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation (K-DOT), several PMMA communities were able to purchase a transportation van. Residents are enjoying shiny new rides that will help them, as well as community members.
The communities to receive a grant to purchase a new van include: Arkansas City, Lawrence, Newton, Parsons and Topeka.
“Being without transportation is frustrating and can make seniors feel like they’ve really lost their independence. By offering this service, residents and community members can simply call and schedule a ride and be taken to run errands, visit the doctor, go shopping, or even on fun outings,” said one transportation assistant.
