Accent Business Products Supports New Hope Hospice House

Accent Business Products and the Turbeville family of Fort Myers and Lehigh Acres, have donated $10,000 to Hope Hospice and Community Services for the construction of a Hope Hospice House in Lehigh Acres.

Accent Vice President Bo Turbeville said his company and his family are proud to support the new facility, which will serve Lehigh Acres, LaBelle, Clewiston, the Gateway community, Alva, East Fort Myers, Buckingham and all points in between. It will include 24 private patient care suites, bereavement counseling offices, a chapel, and community rooms for education.

“It is this kind of community spirit and commitment that makes our mission possible,” according to Hope President and CEO Samira K. Beckwith. “The Turbeville family and Accent Business Products have set a great example for other businesses to follow.”

The gift of $10,000 becomes part of the $5 million capital campaign for construction of the hospice house. More than $1 million has been raised to date.
