As a way of thanking providers for the good they do for their communities, VGM Insurance is giving awards of $1,000 throughout the year to companies that provide the most compelling nominations of a local charity.
The first July winner of the Quarter Century of Caring Campaign was Camp No Limits. The organization was nominated by Loi T. Ho of Prosthetic Design and Research of Tampa, Fla.
Camp No Limits is the only camp experience designed specifically for young people with limb loss and their families. They provide therapeutic programs with physical and occupational therapists, prosthetists and adult amputee role models. The camps empower young amputees to be independent and reach their full potential, while understanding that there truly are no limits!
The second July winner was HopeKids Minnesota, nominated by Kelsey Halena of Pediatric Home Service in Roseville, Minn.
HopeKids works to restore hope and transform the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions and their families.
By offering no-cost events and activities in their area, HopeKids helps families spend fun, quality time together in an environment that allows for any special medical requirements their child might have. HopeKids events include sporting events, theme parks, live entertainment, museums, and more! As these activities never come with a fee to families, HopeKids relies on donations to make each event possible. The $1,000 donation will allow HopeKids continue supporting families in need for years to come.
The third July winner was the Hospice of Central Pennsylvania, nominated by Terry Luft of Dynamic Healthcare Services in York, Pa.
The Hospice of Central Pennsylvania is a non-profit hospice that provides services and care to all those who need it, regardless of whether they have insurance. Services are also provided for families after the passing of their loved one. The $1,000 donation will be used to help provide essential care for patients and families that do not have insurance.
