Heritage Hospice wants your vote Tuesday
Heritage Hospice is hoping to get its hands on a new Toyota vehicle and is asking for your help.
The Danville agency — which helps provide end-of-life care in Boyle, Garrard, Lincoln and Mercer counties — has been chosen as one of 500 nonprofit finalists in Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program, a philanthropic initiative in which the automaker is giving 100 vehicles to 100 worthy agencies over the course of 100 days.
To win a vehicle, agencies collect votes over the Internet on their day. The nonprofit with the most votes at the end of each day will win one of six Toyota models. Runners-up will each receive a $1,000 cash grant from Toyota.
Heritage Hospice will be up for consideration on Tuesday and people can cast votes at www.100carsforgood.com.
“A new vehicle would really be a game changer for our ability to provide care, mostly in the homes, in the four counties we serve and to help deliver hospital equipment,” said Janelle Wheeler, executive director.
