Kevin Garvey Society


The Kevin Garvey Society

Named in honor of young Kevin Garvey, The Kevin Garvey Society celebrates individual donors who share his generous spirit and belief in giving to others in a great and caring way. We are humbled to give special thanks to this group of distinguished donors who give $500 or more each year to directly support the patients and families calling Kevin Guest House their home away from home.

Supporting Special Projects

From time to time the Kevin Garvey Society members are asked to help with special projects including our Comfort & Compassion Project

A number of years ago, our kitchen chairs had seen a lot of wear-and-tear. We needed to upgrade from the existing residential-grade chairs to something stronger. Most importantly we needed to make an investment in safe yet comfortable chairs that could be enjoyed by our guests each day.

Thanks to the extra-special generosity of our Kevin Garvey Society members, this Comfort & Compassion Project raised nearly $7,000 to purchase commercial-grade kitchen chairs. Our friends from the Interior Design Association of WNY helped find some that would look great in our beautiful kitchen, and secured them for a great price helping our donors’ generosity go even further. Our 2019 Comfort & Compassion Project will be to replace the lovely but worn carpeting on the front and back staircase and throughout the second floor of the main house, including a couple of bedrooms. COVID-19 put the project on hold, but generous friends donated more $9,770, and as soon as we can we will upgrade the carpeting to provide a comfortable and clean environment for our guests.
