Solicitation deceptive, Hospice of North Central Oklahoma says

Hospice of North Central Oklahoma does not solicit funds by general mailings, Marta Sullivan, the Chief Executive Officer for Hospice of NCO says.

Sullivan said she was informed by a local citizen who had received a flyer in the mail asking for donation though a program titled 2015 Ponca City Area Appeal Telethon for Hospice Support Fund.

Recipients are offered choices for a voluntary donation dollar amount and given a date the donation is requested to be returned by. The brochure comes with a return mailer to a post office box in Merrifield, Va.

Hospice of North Central Oklahoma conducted a bowling tournament last month, Sullivan said. The organization has its annual Kentucky Derby and Golf Tournament set in May.

“Hospice of NCO does not solicit funds through a general appeal like this and certainly not through a telethon” Sullivan said.

“No donations given through this mailer would be returned to Ponca City and Hospice of NCO is not part of and would not benefit from any donations made”, Sullivan added.
