Donations made in memory of employee

GREENVILLE — State of the Heart Care staff employed at the Hospice Care Center, located on the fourth floor of Wayne HealthCare, donated toys this year in memory of Gill Hawk.

Hawk was a nurse at the agency who passed away earlier this year. The Care Center family decided to buy toys and donate them to a local charity for Christmas in his name, as a remembrance to him.

“Since Gill passed we have hole missing in our family,” shared Cassie Creech, an RN at the Care Center. “Gill always gave back to everyone he met, whether it was personal or professional.”

Karla Greer, a hospice aide also worked very closely with Hawk and spoke on why the staff decided to donate. “This year we have decided to give back to our community, just as Gill had done for so many years,” she said.

“The theme of the Christmas Tree was ‘Santa’s Workshop,’ said a spokesperson. “Staff used toys that would be donated to decorate the tree. State of the Heart would like to wish a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to the community, from our family to yours.”
