RALEIGH — State Employees’ Credit Union (SECU) members, via the SECU Foundation, announced their support today for a new initiative in partnership with Mountain Valley Hospice, SECU Hospice Home of Yadkin. Representatives from SECU and the Foundation met with partnering officials at the 4-acre site of the future hospice facility in Yadkinville for the formal presentation of a $1 million challenge grant to assist with the construction of an inpatient and residential hospice care facility for terminally ill patients and their families. SECU Foundation Board Chair McKinley Wooten, Jr. presented the check to Mountain Valley Hospice on behalf of Credit Union members who fund the SECU Foundation.
“There just aren’t enough words to properly express my thanks to the members of SECU for their generous grant, which will help us build a hospice home that will serve patients and their families in Yadkin County and throughout the region,” stated Denise Watson, Executive Director of Mountain Valley Hospice. “The SECU Foundation has been a long-time supporter of our mission, and their challenge grant will not only boost our capital campaign, but I’m sure will inspire others to contribute as well. We are extremely grateful for the gift and the continued support.”
“We are proud to work in partnership with Mountain Valley Hospice to help support the construction of the new facility in Yadkinville,” said McKinley Wooten, Jr. “SECU Hospice Home of Yadkin is the thirteenth SECU Foundation-supported hospice project in our state. These projects demonstrate members’ recognition of the great need for inpatient hospice services throughout North Carolina. As steadfast partners, SECU Foundation and Mountain Valley Hospice are helping to provide the highest level of care, compassion and support for patients and their families needing end of life or respite care services.”
