Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton Receives $25,000 Check from WalMart

2016-01-13 11.41.31Patient quality of life at Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton received a $25,000 boost from WalMart today.

Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton was one of several local non-profit organizations to receive grants from WalMart. The funds are earmarked for the Hope Fund which provides food, shelter, utility assistance and temporary housing to ensure families in the community receive the quality end of life care that they deserve. “The difference Walmart makes in giving back to our community shows the true spirit of being a servant to others,” says Lori Poelking-Igel, Executive Director of the Hospice of Dayton Foundation. “This generous gift of $25,000 will lighten the burden of another human being as they transition to the next chapter of their life, their end of life. Thank you for being part of that experience by enhancing the quality of living, not dying. Our Hope Fund enables us to alleviate stress for over 300 individuals who are faced with end of life challenges, but hunger, shelter and clothing won’t be one of them. Thank you for making this a reality for so many in need, and being partners in their journey.”

Additional information about the grant can be found online.

Donate to the Hope Society

The Hospice of Dayton Foundation Hope Society is a way to support the unique programs and activities that Hospice of Dayton offers every day of the year to the community.


Hope is a powerful word, which expresses an even more powerful emotion. We have chosen the word “hope” for this philanthropic group because it conveys the confidence that Hospice of Dayton instills in the individuals and their families under our care.  It is hope that allows those in our care to move forward – knowing that at a time when they need the most support, the entire Hospice of Dayton staff is there to help them navigate this new and unchartered journey.

Everything that is done in the world is done by hope. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Hope Society donations support Hospice of Dayton’s one-of-a-kind programs including Pathways of Hope, a grief center providing bereavement support to patients and family members which also offers a special summer camp for children; the Hope Fund, which supports patients and families in low-income or poverty households where hospice care alone is not enough for quality end-of-life care. As servants to our community, Hospice of Dayton guarantees care to every patient eligible for hospice services, regardless of insurance coverage or their ability to pay. Donations from the Hope Society also help make future initiatives possible.
