When Dave Piver, local sales representative for The Davey Tree Expert Company, heard that Talbot Hospice was not in a position to incur the expense to remove several mature trees that were encroaching on the building, he decided that Davey Tree would make it affordable and do the work free of charge.
Piver was motivated by the experience he had when his mother used hospice services in 2011 and 2012. Piver’s co-worker, Lisa Andrew, client experience coordinator, whose mother was also served by hospice in 2014, was similarly inspired to make sure this project happened.
“After speaking with Hopsice volunteer Cindy Reed at my initial site visit and hearing they didn’t think they could afford to have the work completed they had hoped to, I thought, ‘this is something I want to do to give back for the wonderful care my mom received,’” Piver said.
Andrew said, “Hospice and their volunteers made our family feel welcomed and at home while caring for our mom. It’s nice to be part of an organization that allowed us to give back to the community.”
