SALT LAKE CITY — The O.C. Tanner Co. has donated $1 million to the American Cancer Society for the building of a Hope Lodge, which will offer complimentary accommodations for cancer patients and their caregivers who travel to Salt Lake City for treatment.
“This project is close to our hearts,” says Dave Petersen, president and CEO of O.C. Tanner. “Our company is proud to be a part of such an incredible undertaking. Cancer has touched all of our lives, and this Hope Lodge will be a resource to so many — making their emotional and financial burden lighter to bear.”
In 18 months, the ACS has raised nearly $12 million of the projected $18 million total project cost.
One of 31 Hope Lodges across the United States, the Salt Lake City Hope Lodge will be the first to serve the Intermountain West. Salt Lake City was chosen to house the newest facility because of its treatment centers that draw many patients from outside the Salt Lake area. The lodge will be located at 375 E. 100 South.
The Salt Lake lodge is projected to be 63,000 square feet and capable of housing 42 patients at any time. To donate or for more information, visit HopeLodgeUtah.org.
