CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- For families who have a loved one suffering from a terminal illness, the holidays can be especially difficult.
Hospice and Palliative Care Charlotte Region relieves suffering and improves the quality and dignity of life for children and adults with advanced illnesses or at the end of life. They serve more than 900 patients and their families each day.
During the holiday season, they work to make sure the holidays are special for those suffering. There's a way you can help make their mission possible.
Especially now, they are looking for people to help with prepared or unprepared holiday meals for patients and their families. They're also selling commemorative bells and lights on their "Remembrance Trees" in honor or memory of your loved ones. They, of course, always need volunteers and donations to help support care for people without insurance.
If you can help, call 704-375-0100 and ask for the Volunteer Services Department.
For donations, call Caroline Clark at 704-335-3536. You can also donate online at http://www.hpccr.org
