The Friends of Hospice established in 2008. Our mission is to reach out to inform our communities about Hospice Services and the importance of end of life care. Through our friend and fundraisers we connect with others and are able to support hospice families in need. Friends of Hospice financially helps to support The Children’s Grieving Center and Camp Chrysalis, bereavement support programs for children who have lost a loved one and the purchase of sheets and mattress pads for families in need for loved ones receiving hospice care at home. Friends also supplies tote bags for families at the Kaplan Family Hospice Residence and is also called on at other times to assist the organization in other ways.
One of the ways we accomplish these things is by requesting a $25.00 donation annually to become a Friend of Hospice. We hold an annual spring meeting and membership events quarterly.
Our two main fundraisers are the Annual Mum Sale, held every September and Witch Hat Party every October. We also run an ongoing White Sale for the purchase of XL Bed Sheets and Mattress Pads for our families in need receiving Hospice care at home. All bed sheets and mattress pads are purchased at Bed Bath & Beyond in Newburgh. We look forward to growing and making new friends.
Become a Friend of Hospice today. Join Now.
