Community Generosity Makes an Impact!
Posted on June 15th, 2020
Recently, the Skagit Community Foundation (SCF) created a disaster relief fund to support and help sustain charitable organizations and agencies as they work to directly address the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts on the Skagit Valley.
We are grateful for this fund and for the donors who helped make $7,500 available to Hospice of the Northwest. These funds will provide quality of life at the end of life.
Despite the disruption of COVID-19, providing compassionate and dignified care to dying people must continue. At Hospice of the Northwest, the pandemic has impacted the way expert and compassionate end of life care is delivered. Some of the changes include increased safety measures for clinicians, patients, and people in their household, as well as deploying new technologies to help clinicians visit and communicate with patients. Because of these changes, costs around providing care have increased. Funding, like this grant from the SCF, helps to offset budget impacts due to the pandemic.
Michael Stark, Executive Director of the Skagit Community Foundation, shared his gratitude for “the donors that help us support organizations like Hospice. Together we can all make a difference in our community.”
Thank you to the Skagit Community Foundation and its donors. We are grateful for your commitment to our community and your support of the expert and compassionate services Hospice of the Northwest delivers. Your gifts provide hope to more people than you can imagine!
