Do you feel called to support Home Health & Hospice in some way?
We thank you!
Know you’re among dedicated neighbors supporting medically necessary care to patients and families of all ages and stages of life through bake sales, golf tournaments, jean days, bowl-a-thons and other creative events.
We thank you for considering giving back in this way!
By joining with friends, family and colleagues to turn an activity you love into support for Home Health & Hospice, you’ll bring essential medical care to patients and families — particularly those unable to pay for that care themselves. A community fundraising event is a fun way to ensure this care is ongoing. We offer a few tips to help you get started having fun and raising funds!
Again, thank you!
How Does It Work?
Above all, your event should be FUN and the right fit for you and your group! Consider the interest, talents, goals and time availability of your planning team. Think how you could promote the event to get friends, family and community excited and involved. There are many fun ways to bring people together — pick the event that’s right for you! Friends like those with Essex Cares have hosted golf tournaments, for example.
