Recently, it was brought to my attention that some area residents are being solicited by phone to give donations to “hospice” and in at least one incidence when asked, the caller was reluctant to reveal the name of the organization to receive the donation.
Please be aware, has never, is not now nor has any plan to engage in soliciting donations via the telephone.
Granted, donations to East End Hospice are welcome and necessary to support activities such as our highly acclaimed children’s bereavement programs, providing groups and individual therapy sessions to children and parents all across the East End; Camp Good Grief which in this the 15th year is expected to be attended by over 100 children; and the very exciting new project to build an 8 bed free standing hospice inpatient residence.
Looking back over the past 21 years of serving the people of the East End, the community has steadfastly supported and encouraged us in our work. We look forward to providing care and comfort to those in need in the years ahead as East End Hospice continues to bring the extraordinary level of support families have become accustomed to and rightly deserve.
