Bob Evans Farms makes generous donation to Cancer Support Community Central Ohio for community center naming rights

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — With much gratitude, Cancer Support Community Central Ohio  is pleased to announce that Bob Evans Farms – a generous long-time supporter and champion – has given a sizable six-figure donation to name the organization’s community center the “Bob Evans Farms Center” for the life of the building.

Bob Evans Farms, with this donation, answered the call Cancer Support Community Central Ohio made through its Rays of Hope Campaign capital campaign that further enables the organization to serve more people impacted by cancer.

Cancer Support Community Central Ohio helps people manage the cancer journey, from point of diagnosis through long-term survivorship, through more than 85 monthly programs and services, to achieve better health outcomes and improve quality of life. Through this gift, Bob Evans Farms is directly helping central Ohioans access Cancer Support Community Central Ohio’s high-quality, evidence-based services led by qualified mental health professionals and credentialed facilitators, at no cost, for all those impacted by a cancer diagnosis – patients, survivors, family members and caregivers.

It is only fitting that Bob Evans Farms, an outstanding corporate partner, would put its name on the building to welcome and support all who are impacted by cancer to the Bob Evans Farms Center.

“Renowned for its corporate giving and philanthropic efforts, Bob Evans Farms is a company with so much heart. We are so very fortunate and honored to have them supporting Cancer Support Community Central Ohio to this extent. For many years, they have been a champion with numerous contributions to support our programming and events,” said Bev Soult, president and CEO, Cancer Support Community Central Ohio.  “It’s only through the generosity of Bob Evans Farms, and other corporate donors, that we can continue to identify effective support solutions, create personalized wellness plans, offer meaningful education and resources, and deliver essential guidance so that no one faces cancer alone.”

“Supporting the communities where we live and work is a key pillar for Bob Evans Farms,” Mark Delahanty, President and CEO of Bob Evans, said. “We’re honored to have our long-standing partnership with Cancer Support Community Central Ohio represented through naming rights of the building. This will be a lasting legacy of our commitment to the important work and the difference this organization makes in our community.”
