AGC of Utah Donates to American Cancer Society to Build Hope Lodge

Donation and Member Support Will Help Traveling Cancer Patients

SALT LAKE CITY — The American Cancer Society announced that it has joined forces with the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of Utah, a chapter of AGC of America, to build a Hope Lodge in Utah, kicking off with a $20,000 donation from AGC and its members.

The Hope Lodge in downtown Salt Lake City will serve residents from rural Utah and the Intermountain West who travel to Salt Lake to receive care at its cancer treatment centers. The Hope Lodge fundraising campaign is an $18 million venture, and upon completion, the Lodge will provide 41 suites for cancer patients and their caregivers to stay free of charge while undergoing treatment.

“Cancer is a disease that affects almost everyone in some way,” said Mark Green, president and CEO of M.C. Green & Sons Inc. “That is why we are passionate about helping to build the Hope Lodge and giving hope a home right here in Salt Lake. In addition to our donation, we are encouraging our members and the community at large to get involved by making donations or volunteering wherever possible.”

“We are grateful for the donation and support of AGC of Utah,” said Pam Higginson, vice president and Hope Lodge campaign director for the American Cancer Society Great West Division. “We look forward to working with AGC of Utah and having the support of so many premier contractors as we begin building this unique facility and as we continue moving closer to our goal of bringing a Hope Lodge to Salt Lake City.”
