Hospice grateful for gift

On behalf of Hospice of Homer staff, board members, volunteers and the people we serve, a heart-felt thank you to the Jane Little Family Endowment Fund for the recent, unexpected and much appropriated unrestricted funds grant. Also, thank you to the Homer Foundation for facilitating this grant and all they do for the community.

The grant from the Jane Little Family Endowment is so important to Hospice of Homer in that hospice receives very limited unrestricted funds, that is, monies that support the day-to-day operating of hospice.

In these challenging economic times unrestricted donated funds are essential in allowing us to keep our doors open so that we can continue to provide free of charge services to community members. Specifically, the monies from the grant will be used to pay for program supplies for example materials for our volunteer training sessions; Volunteer Visitor and End of Life packets; and bereavement correspondence mailings.

If you are interested in learning more about Hospice of Homer, becoming a hospice volunteer or making a donation to Hospice of Homer, please stop by the office at 910 East End Road or give us a call at 235-6899.
