Hospice grate­ful for vol­un­teers, com­mu­nity sup­port

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum - Susie Loomis, Wal­dorf The writer is the vol­un­teer co­or­di­na­tor with Hospice of Charles County.

On Aug. 9, more than 50 hospice vol­un­teers and guests were rec­og­nized at the an­nual Hospice of Charles County Vol­un­teer Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Dinner, held at the Wal­dorf Jaycees Hall. In­di­vid­u­als who are in­volved in pa­tient/fam­ily sup­port, be­reave­ment, ad­min­is­tra­tive du­ties, call cen­ter, house and fundrais­ing were hon­ored for the self­less acts of kind­ness. Hospice also rec­og­nized the ladies from Project Li­nus, who make and do­nate blan­kets for our chil­dren’s Camp Sun­shine and the ladies from Fort Foote Bap­tist Church who make and do­nate the red, white and blue blan­kets for out vet­eran pa­tients. Vol­un­teers are the heart of hospice and very much ap­pre­ci­ated.

There are sev­eral busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als who also de­serve recog­ni­tion for their on­go­ing sup­port of Hospice. Those who do­nated door prizes for the vol­un­teers in­clude Shelvy Hur­ley, County Florist, Jo­son Fine Jew­elry and Home Bou­tique, Went­worth Nurs­ery, Color Room, Kim Rad­kte, Lefty’s BBQ, Old Line Bank, Cap­tain Billy’s, Char­lotte Hall Jazzer­cise, Na­tion­wide Dent Re­pair, Mandy Wil­cox, Gail Cavella, Carol Ep­p­ley and hats off to the hospice staff that gen­er­ously do­nated 30 door prizes to show how much the vol­un­teers are ap­pre­ci­ated. Thank You to the Wal­dorf Jaycees Hall for their hospi­tal­ity and good food.

We are truly blessed to have so many peo­ple that are so sup­port­ive and ded­i­cated to Hospice of Charles County year af­ter year.
