When someone is fighting for their life, they should not have to worry about lodging, be without their advocate, or sleep in a car. That is why I give to Kevin Guest House.
I am proud to be a member of the board of directors of this inspiring organization and have the opportunity to see first hand how important KGH is to our patients and their families. When Cy and Claudia Garvey opened Kevin Guest House nearly 47 years ago as a tribute to their youngest son Kevin who passed away from leukemia, I’m sure they wouldn’t have imagined how many lives would be touched. Nearly 56,000 guests have been welcomed through our doors, continuing Kevin’s legacy, and with our expansion we anticipate being able to offer comfort and support to 2,000 more each year. This is all possible because of the great generosity of friends like you. We would be so grateful if you would support the vision the Garveys had – to ensure people had a place to stay while receiving specialized medical care in Buffalo.
Help the KGH board of directors and friends of the house raise the $60,000 we need to close our first expansion campaign. With just 2% left of our $3 million goal, we're so close!
You can continue to provide a home away from home for families in medical crisis. The opening of our fourth building, the Russell J. Salvatore House on the Kevin Guest House Campus allowed us to double the number of guests we can serve, keep families together with larger suites and for the first time in our history offer handicap-accessibility. A gift of any size matters!
Responding to needs. That's what Cy and Claudia Garvey did in 1972 when they opened Kevin Guest House. While it was a tribute to their son, Kevin, who died of leukemia at age 13, it also filled the need the family saw as they traveled from Pennsylvania to Buffalo for treatment. They witnessed parents, spouses, and children, sleeping in cars and on hospital benches to be close to their loved ones, unable to afford a hotel stay.
We continue to respond to the needs of those traveling to Buffalo to seek critical medical care. That led us to launch our first capital expansion campaign. The Russell J. Salvatore Hospitality House doubled our capacity to serve and made our campus handicap-accessible for the first time.
After nearly four years of hard work, our fourth property opened in August of 2018. We are so close and have just under $100,000 left to raise to finalize our campaign. Please help us and be a part of what the Garvey's started more than 47 years ago with your donation.
