Car Wash for Copley Morrisville Vermont


Graduates of Copley's Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program would like to wash your car to say "thanks" to Copley Hospital. They will be washing cars for donations from 10am-2pm Saturday, July 3 at the intersection of Route 100 and Route 15 in Morrisville. Proceeds from the car wash will help with Copley Hospital's "Smoke-Free" program. The Mobil Gas Station and Aubuchon Hardware are graciously supporting the fundraiser.

The graduates are members of the Breathe Easier Support Network, Copley's monthly support group for adults living with emphysema, chronic bronchitis, sleep apnea and other forms of lung disease and breathing disorders. They will be joined by Copley Hospital staff, including Respiratory Therapists Steve Cothalis and David Odum.

The idea for the benefit care wash came about during one of the "Breathe Easier Support Network" meetings. (The support group meets on the second Wednesday of the month from 3pm-5pm and is a collaboration with the American Lung Association.) The group is very supportive of Copley Hospital's move to becoming a smoke-free campus as of November. Proceeds from the car wash will go towards smoke-free signs and resources for patients and visitors to help ease nicotine withdrawal symptoms.

Copley Hospital will become a smoke-free campus in November to provide a healthy and safe environment for patients, visitors and employees and to promote positive health behaviors. A Smoke-Free Task Force, made up of employees who are current smokers, ex-smokers and some who have never smoked, are helping coordinate the change. Employees will not be allowed to use tobacco while working at the hospital; patients and visitors will be asked to refrain from using tobacco while they are at the hospital. Resources will be available to help ease nicotine withdrawal symptoms. For anyone that wishes to quit smoking, the Copley Hospital Wellness Center has trained professionals who can help. The Copley Wellness Center can be reached at 802-888-8369.
