Dunaway Manor/Heritage Community needs your help! Dr. W. F. & Mada Dunaway Manor and Heritage Community are a 501c3 corporation founded in 1962 to provide Housing and Care to the elderly of Guymon, Texas County and the Oklahoma Panhandle. We provide Skilled Nursing, Rehabilitation and Therapy, Long Term Care, Respite Care, Assisted Living Apartments and Memory Care Assisted Living Apartments. We are a free standing 501c3 not owned or operated by any entity. Because of this, since our founding we have depended on the generosity of the communities that we serve, and we need your help. The main chiller that cools Dunaway Manor has gone out, and it is not fixable. It is old, and they no longer make parts for it. We have done our best to keep it maintained and operating, but it has reached a point this year, where it can not be patched or fixed. This chiller is the main Air Conditioning for all of the Manor, except North Hall which has its own system that was installed when that area was remodeled at the same time that Heritage Community was constructed. We are currently able to cool the facility using our small back up chiller, but when the summer heat arrives the backup will not handle it. The cost to replace the unit will be $45,000.00. It will be a York, 30 Ton Unit installed by Air Pro of Guymon. Being a non-profit, this is a huge hit to our budget and more than we currently have in our emergency reserve account. The past year has been a tough one for Dunaway/Heritage. We have seen a decrease in our income and an increase in our expenses due to COVID and related expenses to meet the new rules and regulations that have been put in place by the State and Federal Government for all Long-Term Care and Assisted Living Communities in the United States. So, we need our local community’s help. We are asking that individuals, service clubs, businesses and churches donate to us to help pay for this chiller that we must have in order to care for the neighbors that live here. Dr. W.
