• FOH Cooking Classes

Since 1985 we have been deeply committed to supporting and funding hospice and palliative care programs. We need your help to continue our work in the community!  The Covid-19 realities have forced us to transition our in-person fundraising luncheon to an online event and we need your support.  The Virtual Fundraising Event will feature a silent auction and a special appeal!  The coronavirus has been devastating to Friends of Hospice SW Washington, and we need this Event to be successful in order to continue supporting hospice and palliative care in SW Washington!

This year, it is all about the children!  Please help us help them by clicking on the button below to make a donation.  The funds will help support the care of the children in hospice care, granting last wishes, assisting with the bereavement programs and summer camps provided by the hospice care organizations in SW Washington.

Here is a little story about a small way of how we can help.  A 5-year-old child in hospice care kept insisting she needed a “little red wagon.”  After being questioned why the wagon was so important to her, she simply said, “I need my red wagon so I can take my toys to heaven…….”

PLEASE help us provide “little red wagons” for the children.

Thank you for your support and generosity!
