The Pathway Home comfort care home being planned for Waterloo has received a signficant donation from the Seneca Meadows Landfill. More importantly, the check is the first of five annual donations the company has committed. A total of $25,000 is intended to help Pathway Home with ongoing operational support.
The donation fulfills a promise made by the former director of community relations for the Landfill, Carl Casaccia before he retired in 2011. In 2006, Casaccia earned a Community Service Award from the Women’s Rights Convention Days Committee and in 2007 was presented with the Chamber of Commerce Lifetime Achievement Award.
Current community relations director Mark Benjamin wanted to make note of Casaccia’s legacy in supporting the hospice care organization. “When Pathway Home first started putting plans together three years ago, Carl said that when they were ready to move the project along, we would be there with support. Now that Pathway Home is preparing to start a capital campaign, we wanted to be among the first to help provide ongoing support for this important work,” Benjamin said.
Pathway Home has begun planning for a capital campaign to finance construction of a two-bedroom comfort care home on Marshall Road in Waterloo. They have purchased the Marshall Road property and have made preliminary floor plans and gotten bids from contractors. Pathway Home will be sponsoring a fund-raiser for the campaign on February 13th at Ciccino’s in Waterloo from 6-8pm.
