MISHAWAKA, Ind. (PRWEB) December 05, 2017
Center for Hospice Care (CHC), has joined the Newman’s Own Foundation $500K Holiday Challenge. The challenge has a grand prize of $150,000 for the organization that raises the most funds. All of the funds raised by Center for Hospice Care will go toward supporting end-of-life care and programs for veterans in the eight counties that CHC serves.
CHC has kept its 37-year promise to the community that no one eligible for hospice care would be turned away due to an inability to pay. Currently, one in four deaths in the United States is that of a veteran, and CHC strives to ensure that every veteran under their care feels a strong sense of gratitude and respect for their service. The funds raised during the Newman’s Own Challenge will support veterans in various ways, including the Veterans Memorial on CHC’s Mishawaka campus, pinning ceremonies, and arrangement of funeral services.
Donations to this challenge, which runs through January 3, 2018, can be made at crowdrise.com/Hospice-Foundation.
