HICKORY– Catawba Valley Medical Center pledged $200,000 to Catawba Valley Habitat for Humanity’s capital campaign, Habitat Repairs.
The donation is in honor of Charles Dixon, a longtime community philanthropist, according to a press release. Dixon served as chief counsel for CVMC from the 1960’s until 2009.
The Habitat Repairs program was a cause Dixon advocated for, and he “believed would change the lives of low-income, disabled and elderly Catawba County homeowners,” J. Anthony Rose, President and CEO of CVMC said via the release.
