The sales team at Lange & Fetter Motors showed their heart for Hospice Quinte this October, raising an undisclosed amount for the organization’s Heart & Home Building Campaign.
Hospice Quinte was selected by Lange & Fetter Motors to be the October recipient of the company’s “12 Months of Giving” program. Throughout the month of October, each member of the Lange & Fetter sales team made a personal donation, for each vehicle sold, to Hospice Quinte’s Heart & Home Building Campaign, which was then matched by the Lange & Fetter’s management team. Donations from Lange & Fetter patrons were also collected and included in the overall total.
“We are honoured to have been selected by Lange & Fetter’s sales team to receive their support,” said Lisa McMurter, Communications & Outreach Coordinator for Hospice Quinte. “Building the Hospice Quinte Care Centre is incredibly important to our community and having the opportunity to share our message with the sales team and their patrons has been an invaluable contribution to our campaign.”
All of the funds raised from the Heart & Home Building Campaign will fund the construction of the Hospice Quinte Care Centre, a six-bed hospice palliative care centre, where professional care will be provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and at no cost to the patient or their family.
Launched in May of this year, the Heart & Home Building Campaign has received a tremendous response and financial support from local government, businesses, service clubs, organizations, foundations and individuals from across Quinte.
