Looking for Ways to Give?
As we reflect on the patients and families we have cared for in our community over the last 30 years we are reminded of the purity of the word “comfort”. To comfort means to soothe, console, reassure, support, and encourage. Many people ask what they can do to support Hoffmann Hospice in continuing to provide comfort to those that need it most.
Often, families of Hoffmann Hospice patients choose to give memorial gifts to honor their loved ones. Many families ask that gifts be made to Hoffmann Hospice “in lieu of flowers” or “in addition to flowers”, and we greatly appreciate those gifts to help us continue our mission. Hoffmann Hospice sends acknowledgments to the designated family member anytime a donation has been made in memory of their loved one.
Memorial gifts, particularly around important dates like birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays, are a special way to let someone know you are thinking about them. In addition, Hoffmann Hospice holds an annual candlelight remembrance and tree lighting ceremony the first Tuesday in December every year called Light Up A Life.
Thanks to the generosity of supporters, Hoffmann Hospice has had the privilege of serving over 20,000 adults, children, and veterans with a serious or terminal illness regardless of their ability to pay. Donations to Hoffmann Hospice assure that high quality care is available to all Hoffmann Hospice patients and their families, including patients in need of financial assistance. Contributions also support non-core programs and services offered including:
- Unfunded Patients
- Bucket List Wishes
- Grief Support Groups
- Volunteer Programs
- Heart Art Camp
- We Honor Veterans Program activities
- Community Outreach and Education activities
- and many more important programs and services
