Covid-19 Emergency Fund
The pandemic has made a situation already fraught with fear, uncertainty, and pain even more difficult for the people we help — hospice patients who are struggling to make ends meet.
Hospice patients, typically frail seniors with compromised immunity, are at high risk of contracting the virus. Hospice teams are drastically understaffed due to quarantine restrictions and school closures. While nurses are jeopardizing their lives to continue care, other hospice staff are restricted from visiting their patients, preventing critical one-on-one interactions at a time when they are desperately needed.
Your donation will make a vital difference to the comfort and well-being of hospice patients during this crisis. Your gift will help provide:
- Groceries for those who don’t have the means to stock up.
- Tablets and phones to ensure patients can connect to friends and family remotely.
- Rent and mortgage payments so patients can remain in the safety of their home.
We receive no state or federal funding and simply can’t provide these essential comforts without your help. Please consider making a donation to our Emergency Fund so as many people as possible receive these services at this crucial time. A gift of any size will make an enormous difference.
