NOCO Express Stores, its customers, and employees recently joined forces to support Hospice Foundation of Western New York. Throughout the entire month of June, paper sunflowers were sold for $1 each at all of NOCO Express' 35 locations to benefit Hospice for a total donation of $11,410.
"NOCO is proud of our 80 year tradition of giving back to the Western New York community," said Michael Newman, executive vice president, NOCO. "Thank you to our customers and employees who donated generously to support Hospice Foundation of WNY and the services they provide to individuals and their families in our local communities."
In 2012, NOCO raised $4,770 for Hospice during a two-week campaign at its Express stores. Grand Island is home to a NOCO Express at 1898 Whitehaven Road.
"The Hospice Foundation is proud to be affiliated with NOCO on our annual Sunflower Days promotion," said Katie Whiting, special events manager, Hospice Foundation of WNY. "Thank you NOCO for your dedicated support of Hospice care in our community and helping us to continue to care for those who need us most."
