BELLEVILLE – When Kay Stafford died in 1996 she left $1.2 million to the Trenton Memorial Hospital Foundation  to be used to help community groups in need.
Since then, the gift has helped 63 community groups provide first-aid training, ambulances, stretchers and more.
The foundation accepts funding applications annually. This year, community groups have until noon on March 25 to apply.
