December 15, 2015 – Lawrence, MA – Representatives from the Board of Directors of the East Coast Camaro Club (ECCC) presented a check in the amount of $5000 to Merrimack Valley Hospice. This generous donation represented proceeds from the ECCC’s 34th Annual All-Vehicle Car Show hosted in August. The club’s ongoing support of Merrimack Valley Hospice helps the non-profit to provide care to patients and families as they confront the challenges of advanced illness and end of life at home or at Merrimack Valley Hospice House in Haverhill.
“Many of us have sought the support of hospice as we navigated the final days of a loved one’s life. It is a comfort to have the experience and compassion of hospice staff and volunteers to ensure comfort and peace at the end of life,” says George Giroux, chairman of the East Coast Camaro Club. “We are honored to be able to make a contribution in support of Merrimack Valley Hospice and those unique individuals who dedicate themselves to helping patients and families at such a crucial time.”
“We are thankful for the generosity of all who attend the East Coast Camaro Club’s annual car show,” says John Albert, president and CEO of Home Health Foundation and Merrimack Valley Hospice. “This is a longstanding event and a great day that helps people to understand and appreciate the multi-faceted services available through our agency and the very special people working to care for all that need our support.”
