Give Back to the Giver Week (Hospice Care Partner Appreciation)

Although we do truly appreciate all of our partners 365 days of the year, this is our chance to thank our hospice partners. The purpose of this campaign is to raise awareness and honor the work of nurses, physicians, social workers, chaplains and volunteers that work with hospice and palliative care patients and their families.
For one week, (in lieu of gifting flowers to hospice and palliative care patients), our bouquets will be donated to these individuals to recognize and express our gratitude for the special work they do within our community
