After 17 years of service to McClendon Center and our clients Dennis Hobb has begun a much deserved retirement. We wanted to honor those many years of service in a lasting way. That is why we are launching the Dennis Hobb Meet the Need Funds. Each year, during the month of February, we will honor Dennis and the commitment he made to McClendon Center.
The funds will be used for direct care of our clients for the kinds of needs that Dennis always found a way to meet. Some examples might be a warm coat for a client on a cold day, transportation funds to get to a chemotherapy appointment, or internet service at a group home for online therapy sessions. Although shoes, car services, and internet access officially aren’t eligible expenses, every single time Dennis was faced with these situations, he responded the same way: “We will find a way to meet the need.” The Dennis Hobb Meet the Need Funds will help the organization continue to meet the need for the people it serves.
This year a handful of dedicated donors and Board Members have created a match to launch the Dennis Hobb Meet the Need Funds. We are offering a dollar for dollar match up to $5,000 during the entire month of February 2021. Every gift you give will be matched – essentially doubling your donation up to $5,000. Please join us in honoring Dennis by making a donation to the Dennis Hobb Meet the Need Funds Match Campaign.
Additionally we have included a beautiful video tribute to Dennis and his time at McClendon Center that we are releasing today. It too is a lasting way to honor his many years of dedication to helping clients in countless ways. We think you’ll agree. Please enjoy.
