The Moore County Health Foundation was incorporated on 09/25/96 with our first project to raise funds for a building to house the District ambulances. Our project was successful, and the building that was erected still houses the District ambulances to date. The building also houses EMS staff quarters and a classroom that District staff and community organizations use for education and training. We received tax exempt 501(c)(3) status in 2007 and have been steadily growing through tremendous support of the Moore County Community.
