Shriners Hospital Gets $7 Million Gift

Shriners Hospital in Erie has received a $7 million gift – the largest in its 87-year history.

The gift came from the estate of Fred H. Burchfield of Sebring, Ohio. He also left $7.7 million to the Shriners Hospital in Cincinnati.

Jeffrey Stephenson, chairman of the Erie Shriners Board of Governors, says Burchfield was single and never had children of his own, but obviously had a soft spot in his heart for Shriners Hospital and the work they do for children.
