Raffles bring comfort and care to Kansas City families

Kansas City is an amazing place to live and work. And, for almost 40 years, Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care has cared for the families of this place we all call home. Today we want to tell you about some amazing volunteers and truly generous donors who are working to bring even more compassionate comfort and care to our community.

Over the past 15 years, a volunteer committee has planned an annual event to support all the programs and services of Kansas City Hospice. As a nonprofit organization, our pledge is that no person in our community will go through serious illness alone. Medicare and insurance pay for some things, but it takes more than 500 volunteers and many amazing donors to make sure that all Kansas City families receive the care they need. Each person in our community is valued from life through death and each family is supported in their grief.

This year’s fundraiser is Sunday Night Live, coming up soon on September 15 at Power & Light.

    I am one of those volunteers who have been working hard since February to bring you these great raffle packages. What an honor it is to be on the committee, to work with other dedicated volunteers who are helping to raise funds to support our patients and their families! Please help us meet our goal by sharing this info with all of your friends and family and by attending the event and/or purchasing raffle tickets for these exciting items!

    I am also a patient volunteer. Our role is to visit with patients and provide needed services to them and support to the family members. Over the last 15 years, I have met some amazing people and look forward to continuing to provide care and support for our patients and their families. I was with my last patient for quite a while and I’ll never forget the first day I met her. She said I don’t really like to hug so when I left that evening, I touched her hand and said goodbye. By the third visit she asked me to bend over so she could give me a hug – those are the moments that make it all worth while!

    I could share many touching stories with you but for now I’ll just ask for your support to help this great organization continue to serve our community! We all look forward to seeing you on Sunday, September 15th!!
