Bell Joins Presentation Of Donation To Hospice Of Northwest Ohio
Ride For Dignity Provides Needed Funds to Support Hospice Services
Toledo Mayor Michael P. Bell will join representatives of Signature Harley Davidson to present a check to the leaders of Hospice of Northwest Ohio thanks to the proceeds from the Ride For Dignity. The presentation will take place at 10 a.m., July 21st at the Hospice of Northwest Ohio Perrysburg Campus.
Ride for Dignity was held in June to raise funds in support of Hospice of Northwest Ohio. Each day Hospice cares for nearly 460 patients, either in their own homes, in nursing homes or at one of their state-of-the-art Hospice Centers. No patient is ever turned away due to inability to pay, which makes private contributions like those raised through the Ride for Dignity so important in the ongoing mission to provide compassionate end-of-life care. The service area includes Lucas, Northern Wood, and Western Ottawa Counties in Ohio as well as Monroe County, Michigan.
