Heritage Hospice wants to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted July 24 on Facebook in Toyota's 100 Cars For Good competition. Your support made all the difference. We were in a close race with one of the other agencies competing on that day for a new Toyota. By voting and asking your friends to vote, you helped us win the car.
It will be another five months before we receive our Toyota but we look forward to putting it to good use as we serve patients in Boyle, Garrard, Lincoln and Mercer counties. We travel a lot of miles seeing patients in their homes and nursing facilities and sometimes delivering medical equipment. We have asked for a Highlander and it is going to be a great help as we provide end-of-life care to our four-county service area.
Toyota's program to give away 100 cars to 100 nonprofits in 100 days continues until Aug. 21. There are lots of deserving agencies if you want to check in and continue to vote. Each day, five organizations compete for the car.
