Business Owner Reflects Care and Compassion on Haven Hospice
Chiefland, Florida (January 13, 2015) — The owners of Joe’s Towing and Rollback Inc. Joe and Ellen Gloff reflected care and compassion on the local non-profit Haven Hospice Attic Resale Store by purchasing and replacing the side mirrors for the store’s donation van.
“Both side mirrors had been beaten off with a wooden stick that was left at the scene and the mirrors were completely shattered,” said Haven Hospice Attic Resale Store Manager Malesa McCleery who noticed the Attic’s donation pick-up van had been vandalized in December. “Because we could not drive the van in that condition, we were unable to pick up donations in the community.”
Ellen Gloff makes a donation to the Haven Hospice Attic Resale store every day by providing goods such as clothing, toiletries or equipment through her workplace. These goods are items that have been returned but cannot be sent back to the manufacturer. When she learned about the vandalism, she told her husband Joe who immediately took action.
“As soon as I told Joe he said, ‘Well, I’m going to buy them new side mirrors’ and that’s what he did,” said Gloff. “He was able to purchase the new mirrors and replace the broken ones within a few days.”
Gloff dressed up as the Grinch for previous Kids Night at the Attic events in Chiefland and has been a Haven Hospice Attic Resale Store customer since the first store opened in Gainesville.
“Haven is a great organization and we have heard nothing but good things from our friends and coworkers who have had loved ones cared for by Haven,” said Gloff.
All proceeds from purchases at the Haven Hospice Attic Resale Store go directly to supporting the unreimbursed programs and services provided by Haven Hospice to the patients and families in the Tri-Counties. Haven Hospice would like to thank Ellen and Joe Gloff for their support.
