We are very pleased to announce that both The Charlevoix County Community Foundation and the Petoskey Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation have recognized Hospice of Northwest Michigan, through their grant awards, as a valued nonprofit that not only positively impacts our local community but is a focused community care partner. The $5,000 Charlevoix County Community Foundation grant will assist Hospice of Northwest Michigan in developing a marketing plan for our organization, and include needed marketing tools and training, helping us to spread the message that “You have a Choice” in hospice care and hospice care is about “Making Life Moments Happen”. The $3,500 Petoskey Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation grant will help us to be able to purchase, assemble, and distribute more of the File of Life refrigerator kits to more Emmet County residents during presentations and health fairs.
Amy Wieland, Executive Director, said “We are extremely grateful to both of the Community Foundations for their generous support of our community services and recognizing our services as a valued choice and investment. They have enabled us to more effectively reach out to those who need and depend on Hospice of Northwest Michigan and to ensure that we are able to provide the best possible care.” According to Wieland, the continued outstanding support from the Community Foundations will positively impact our community friends, families and neighbors well into the future.
You have a Choice in hospice care. Know what choices are available for you and your family before an emergent situation arises.
