A generous donation from the Plumas Health Care Foundation provided the materials and new equipment. Cabinets, countertops, sinks, paint and flooring, as well as new televisions, privacy curtainsand bedside tables, were all part of the renovation. Following are some of the individuals who donated all or most of their time: hospital's chief executive officer, worked on the rooms. "We learned a lot and we're fully prepared for the upcoming rooms," Kepple said. "We've been overwhelmed by the community support."

It's hoped that more individuals, businesses or organizations will adopt a room to renovate.
