2012 Corporate Philanthropy Award
When it comes to having a heart for the mission and a commitment to supporting the efforts of Oak Hill, Greg Hancock and his team at Hancock Pharmacy & Surgical exceed all expectations. In general, Greg’s generosity goes well beyond simply writing a check, it comes from the heart, and can easily go un-noticed simply because he is so humble.
Shirley Lyn, Wallingford-Hall Acres Group Home Manager, and Oak Hill Camp Director shared these thoughts about Oak Hill’s relationship with Hancock Pharmacy.
“For the past 6 years Greg has graciously allowed us to set up a Mother’s day plant sale in his store parking lot in Meriden, giving us the opportunity to earn anywhere from $450.00-$1000.00 in sales. During these plant sales, out of nowhere, pizza and drinks will be delivered for everyone. Then, as if he hasn’t done enough already he gives us a generous check as well! Every time I go into Hancock’s Pharmacy to pick up a medication or supply Greg will send me back to the group home with cases of Snapple. During the holidays he sends over more Snapple and “treats.” While at camp, I have ordered supplies that we plan to pick up when we get the chance, and all of the sudden we’ll see a Hancock’s vehicle arriving with our delivery, that’s more than 2 hours round trip! Then we never see a bill for those supplies, they are donated to the camp!”
In addition to the major gifts-in-kind, Hancock Pharmacy became a major corporate partner last year. We are grateful to Greg and Hancock Pharmacy for their commitment to Oak Hill and the people with disabilities that we serve.
