DaVita Kidney Care, a division of DaVita Inc. (NYSE: DVA) and a leading provider of kidney care services, announced an $800 contribution to Hope in Action.
On December 23, DaVita Hempstead County Dialysis presented Hope in Action with an $800 check as part of the “DaVita Way of Giving,” the company’s locally focused charitable giving initiative that helps nonprofit organizations throughout the United States grow and thrive.
Hope in Action is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that serves the community with meals and short term accommodations for those without a place to stay. DaVita teammates from DaVita Hempstead County Dialysis chose to donate to Hope in Action to give back to the community and help those in need of food or a place to stay.
“In the past, we have always combined our donation with other centers so that we could make a large donation, but this year, we decided to give what we could and keep it local so that it would stay within our community,” said Amber Montgomery, DaVita Facility Manger.
Mae Dulaney of Hope in Action said that the DaVita contribution will go a long way to support its mission.
“We depend on donations like this in order to help the community. There are times that we run out of food, and we couldn’t make it without donations such as this,” said Dulaney.
DaVita, a leading provider of kidney care services committed to improving the quality of life for those diagnosed with kidney disease, is dedicated to spreading ripples of citizen leadership through its Trilogy of Care – caring for its patients, caring for each other and caring for the world.
