Hospice Care Corporation is kicking off its fifth Annual ” Hearts for Hospice Care”  fundraiser this week to increase awareness and raise money for patients who need hospice services. The theme of this year’s campaign is “Give Local.” The campaign will run through the entire the month of February with the support of local businesses, organizations and individuals here in North Central West Virginia.

The goal for this year’s campaign is $10,000, which benefits patient care for Hospice Care Corporation is a local, free standing, community based 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation hospice for more than 30 years. All proceeds raised will pay for local patients and families who do not have insurance or the ability to pay for hospice care services. Last year, the campaign netted over $5,000 so there is a lot of opportunity for more participation and support at all levels.

The ” Hearts for Hospice Care ” fundraiser is very important because it is supported by local businesses, individuals and organizations. And, even though this campaign looks similar to national in-store run by many organizations fighting various diseases; however, all of the money that is raised stays right here in our local West Virginia communities. One dollar or more donated by many can make a big difference in our loved ones and neighbors lives who need end-of-life care.

“We’ve have all been encouraged to “Shop Local” so, we need to “Give Local” too. “By supporting local, we are strengthening our local economic base and investing in the lives of those we know, said Cynthia Woodyard, Vice President of Public Affairs and Access for Hospice Care Corporation. “It’s the right thing to do,” Woodyard added.

Local businesses, organizations and individuals are encouraged to participate. Here’s how it works. You can support Hospice Care’s mission through a corporate sponsorship or allow your customers to donate $1 or more and proudly honor their loved one on a heart displayed in your business. All contributions are tax deductible. Hospice Care provides you with all of the materials.
