Culver's Gives Back to Unity Hospice to Celebrate National Hospice and Palliative Care Month
Green Bay, Wis. – Since opening the doors of the first restaurant in 1984, Culver’s® has been committed to being an active member in its local community. On Wednesday, November 3rd, five Culver’s locations in Brown County will carry on that tradition by donating 10% of its sales to raise funds for nonprofit Unity Hospice. Unity and Culver’s encourages the public to dine-in or carry-out during the hours of 4-7pm at the following participating locations in celebration of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month:
- Culver’s of De Pere – 1499 Lawrence Drive
- Culver’s of Green Bay – 1219 W Mason Street
- Culver’s of Green Bay – 2945 Voyager Drive
- Culver’s of Green Bay – 909 Hansen Road
- Culver’s of Suamico – 1820 Velp Ave
National Hospice and Palliative Care Month is a time to celebrate the philosophy of person-centered care that brings hope, dignity and compassion when patients and families need it most.
“Coping with a serious illness can be overwhelming. Most individuals want to be surrounded by family and friends, wherever they call home, with their pain and other symptoms managed. Many don’t know where to turn for help. Fortunately, high quality care and support at the end of life is available and it’s covered by Medicare and most private insurance plans. It’s called hospice. With the help of hospice, patients and families alike can focus on what’s most important – enjoying life together and living as fully as possible,” stated Unity Executive Director, Alisa Gerke.
Culver’s support of Unity, the region’s only locally owned and operated nonprofit hospice agency, is just part of its dedication to giving back to the community. From Culver’s founders to locally owned and operated restaurants, each franchise partner and team member understands the importance of serving those in need.
“We’re proud to call Green Bay home and doing our part to help just feels right,” said Dianne Mayer. “We strive to make a difference in the community we share with so many others and working with Unity Hospice allows us to help support individuals and families in our area.”
