Hospice volunteers a shining light for all of us


Editor:

Delaware Hospice benefits year-round from hundreds of individuals throughout the state of Delaware who give of themselves and their precious time. Their service means so much to all of us, as well as to our patients and families.

At this time, I would like to express a special thank you and applaud everyone who contributed to the huge success of the 2006 Festivals of Trees.

Festivals of Trees are held in New Castle, Kent and Sussex counties every November and December, and raise significant funds to support our program and ensure everyone has access to hospice care in Delaware.

Our Festival of Trees volunteers are the heart, soul and backbone of these events. Each year, I am amazed at the complexity of the organization and at the magnificence of the exhibits. And each year, I am overwhelmed with gratitude for our volunteers who give so much of themselves to bring it all together.

As we embark on the journey of providing a new option of hospice care with our future Delaware Hospice Center, we move forward with greater strength of spirit thanks to the presence of these individuals within our organization.
