Your generous participation to this wonderful dinner/auction helps cover the cost of services we provide that are not reimbursed by Medicare or insurance:

  • Hospice and palliative care for patients without insurance and/or funds.
  • Bereavement services for children and adults.
  • The Transitions™ program that provides free social, volunteer, and emotional support for clients facing end-of-life challenges but who are not quite ready for hospice.
  • Practical help for financially stressed patient families who need assistance with utility bills, transportation, and special needs.
  • Educational opportunities for the hospice staff.

Lovejoy Hospice exists because people like you donate, volunteer, and care.

If you want to make a difference this summer, consider making a donation to our annual dinner auction. If you have a something that you think would like to donate, please contact us today! Of course, cash donations and sponsorships are also currently being welcomed.
