Press Release, Supportive Care of Orleans

ALBION – The Burger King in Albion will be accepting donations during the month of February for Supportive Care of Orleans

Mark Cammilleri, owner of the Albion Burger King, met with his staff about what nonprofit they wanted to support, and they all agreed that they wanted to give back to Orleans County.

Barb, one of the main employees who works the drive through, suggested the local hospice in Albion.

“We’ve donated to different charities in the past, including Mark’s brother’s involvement with C.A.R.H.A. (Christian Action Relief for Haiti). We decided, why not do something in our own community that will directly help Orleans County?”

Shelby Hollenback, Burger King manager, and her husband printed off the Supportive Care of Orleans logo and set up the donation box for the drive through.

Every month, Mark Cammilleri gives a check to the hospice based on the donations they received. Many times, Cammilleri matches the amount as well. Starting Feb. 1, the Burger King will be having a drive through donate-a-thon for Supportive Care of Orleans.

“We were originally going to do it just for Valentine’s Day, but we decided to start Feb. 1,” Hollenbeck said.

Supportive Care of Orleans is overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity Mark and his staff have shown, said by Julia Alt, development coordinator at Supportive Care of Orleans. Donations from this fundraiser will go directly to help the patients and families served by hospice.
