Help Build Doey’s House During Washington County Gives on Tuesday May 2nd! Make a donation, leave a legacy, and have lunch!


On Tuesday, May 2, 2017, individuals can help build Doey’s House during Washington County Gives, a 24-hour online giving event.

On this day, every donation Hospice of Washington County (HWC) receives will help HWC claim matching dollars and possible prizes to continue giving back to the Washington County community.

The funds generated by HWC the day of Washington County Gives will help build Doey’s House, a 12-bed inpatient hospice house that will provide general inpatient and respite services for hospice patients right here in Washington County. Doey’s House, which suffered a fire during construction, is being rebuilt and is set to open in the Fall of 2017.

Individuals can make donations to HWC online from 12:00 a.m. to midnight on May 2nd. Stop by HWC’s office at 747 Northern Avenue between 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. during “Donuts for Donors Hour”, make a donation of $10 or more and you will be treated to donuts. Stop by HWC between 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. for their “Power Hour”, make a donation of $10 or more and lunch will be provided to you. Computers will be set up, at Hospice, all day for online giving.

During Washington County Gives, donors who make an online donation to HWC of $50 or more will have their name in a drawing for a $25 gift certificate from Greensburg Farm Market. Those who make a donation of $100 or more will receive a gift certificate for a potted plant from Greensburg Farm Market. Those who make a donation of $250 or more will be able to personalize a paver in honor of a loved one at Doey’s House. Those who make a donation of $1,000 or more will have an opportunity to sponsor a tree in a loved one’s name at Doey’s House. The link to make a donation on May 2nd is:
