Kings Mountain, NC - The Albemarle Foundation Annual Community Campaign supports local non-profit organizations in the areas of education, health and social services, and cultural initiatives. This employee-managed annual campaign collects employee and retiree pledges by payroll deduction or one-time payment, with the Foundation handling distribution. Each year, Albemarle employees help select the following year's member agencies. This year, Hospice Cleveland County was one of the recipients and received a check for $12,000.
"Hospice Cleveland County is very grateful to the Albemarle Foundation and the Corporation's employees for their support. This generous gift will enable us to better provide excellent care for patients and their families." says Myra McGinnis, Hospice CEO.
