The Center for Hospice and Palliative Care – John Wabick (Vice President)
Hospice offers comprehensive, compassionate care for people nearing the end of their lives. Everyone knows someone who has been touched by Hospice. Many of our employees and customers have had the opportunity to utilize the caring services they provide. West Herr’s support of the Hospice Foundation of WNY began with an annual holiday party. In lieu of gifts for the management staff of West Herr, the employees made a charitable contribution. From those early beginnings the relationship has grown and West Herr Auto Group is now involved in many Hospice activities.
We have been the number one corporate pre-sale location for the annual Bouquet Sale for the past 4 years. Our employees and family members participate in the annual Memorial Walk and consistently raise thousands of dollars. We have presented Hospice with a $150,000 gift to renovate and complete a new full service on-campus Bistro. The Bistro is a relaxing environment in which to obtain quality food items without having to leave the site. In addition to West Herr’s philanthropic support of the fundraising events, John Wabick, V.P., also serves as a Board Member.
He has turned to our advertising partners at our local television station (Channel 7) to work on a public service campaign. We have prepared a series of commercials aimed at educating the public to the broad array of services offered by The Center for Hospice and Palliative Care. We made a conscious decision to play a major role as a corporation in charitable giving in our community to effect change. We are dedicated to this cause and are honored to have received the Hospice Hope, Care and Dignity Award in 2005 in recognition of our past, and ongoing, efforts.
