Hospice Quinte is pleased to announce that a generous donation made by West City Honda will go a long way toward driving the future of hospice palliative care in Quinte. A gift of $50K was made by the dealership to Hospice Quinte’s Heart & Home Building Campaign this past April in support of the soon-to-open Hospice Quinte Care Centre.
“Our friends at West City Honda have delighted us with this generous gift to the capital campaign,” says Hospice Quinte Executive Director, Jennifer May-Anderson. “We thank them for stepping up with this amazing contribution during the 3rd wave of the pandemic this past spring, and we are very pleased to formally recognize them now for this outstanding contribution!”
“It gives us great pleasure to contribute to fostering the future of hospice palliative care in Quinte,” says West City Honda President/GM, Greg Sudds. “Services at the new Hospice Quinte Care Centre will enable individuals and families from across our region to focus on what matters most, during particularly difficult times, and we are extremely proud to support this important work.”
To further acknowledge West City Honda’s monumental gift, two highly visible donor walls are being installed in the main foyer of the new Centre and will be named after the dealership in honour of its founder Alfons Micke and his wife Gerlinde.
Construction of the future Hospice Quinte Care Centre, located on Old Highway 2 across from Bayside Secondary School, is well underway with opening slated for this coming fall. To learn more about the Hospice Quinte Care Centre and how you can help ‘Make It Happen’ please visit HospiceQuinte.ca.
