TWO LARGE DONATIONS
Dr. Robert and Rita Robbins have a heart for Hardin County.
In less than six months, the couple donated more than $3 million to local organizations.
The Robbinses donated $1 million in January to Elizabethtown Community and Technical College — the largest private donation the school ever received. It is earmarked to help pay for a planned university center at the college.
In May, a donation by the Robbinses to the Hardin Memorial Health Foundation includes recent cash donations of more than $1.25 million and prior donations of art, property and cash, totaling $2.5 million, with the hope of contributing more in the future to total $5 million.
“We think it is only right that we pay back to the hospital and this community a little of what they have given us,” Dr. Robbins said.
