The Denver Hospice Kicks Off CareGiving 2016
The Denver Hospice on November 1 kicked off CareGiving 2016 – a campaign to raise awareness and funding for critical hospice programs.
CareGiving 2016 celebrates National Hospice and Palliative Care month in November, and culminates on Colorado Gives Day, an annual statewide movement on December 6 to celebrate and increase philanthropy through online giving.
“CareGiving 2016 provides an opportunity to share our stories and highlight the many ways The Denver Hospice cares for thousands of people each year,” said Janelle McCallum, President of The Denver Hospice. “But we could not do it without the support of our community. At The Denver Hospice our care is made possible by your giving.”
The goal of CareGiving 2016 is two-fold:
- Share stories and helpful information with the community about the wide range of caring services The Denver Hospice and Optio Health Services provides families and patients.
- Encourage donations to our not-for-profit organization on Colorado Gives Day. All donations made to The Denver Hospice on Colorado Gives Day will be maximized though the Incentive Fund, increasing the dollar value of every gift. Proceeds will support hospice and palliative care services, as well as critical community programs including support for veterans, grief counseling for children, pet therapy for patients and more.
The variety of services The Denver Hospice offers helps to create better end-of-life experiences for Coloradans.
“When I was introduced to The Denver Hospice, I was not aware of the broader care and coordination services they offer,” said Joan Alexander, whose mother was cared for by The Denver Hospice. “Providing mom with those additional services helped us spend quality time with her. They helped remove much of the stress from the situation. Thanks to The Denver Hospice, Mom’s passing was calm, pain-free and easier for us to face.”
