KEVIN GUEST HOUSE AWARDED LEGISLATIVE GRANT FROM SENATOR WILLIAM STACHOWSKI
BUFFALO, NY: Kevin Guest House, the nation’s first hospital hospitality house, has been awarded a $52,000 Legislative Grant from Senator William Stachowski. A formal announcement by the Senator will be made on Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 1:30 pm at Kevin Guest House.
Located at 782 Ellicott Street in the heart of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus, the mission of Kevin Guest House is to provide safe, comfortable and affordable accommodations to patients and their families traveling from their homes to receive medical treatment at a Buffalo area medical facility such as Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Buffalo General Hospital.
“It is an honor for me to play a small part in the success story that is the Kevin Guest House. The awarding of a $52,000 grant will help purchase some of the necessary equipment needed to save lives of those who are under going bone marrow transplantation. The Kevin Guest House is a very worthy recipient of these funds and hopefully it will encourage other to support this magnificent organization,” said Senator Stachowski.
Funds from the grant will be used to purchase and install emergency generators on the campus of Kevin Guest House.
