Grateful for Our Village
Posted by Anne Rossiter
The thrill of being part of the Midwest CareCenter team reached a highpoint for me and the Community Development team this month. We have just completed the most successful year-end solicitation in our history, receiving more than $620,000 from the start of November to the end of January!
This is due in no small part to our inspired team of staff and volunteers, coupled with
more than 1,000 community members, donors and grateful patient families. They say "It takes a village," and it is, indeed, a team effort to provide world-class care to our community. These funds will provide unreimbursed programs like music therapy, music thanatology, massage therapy and special needs – all offerings that distinguish us from the other 80 hospice providers in the Chicagoland area.
When I called donors to thank them for their gifts, each person elaborated special details of the kind and loving care received by our staff, and I was thanked profusely for
the work that we do. I am privileged to call Midwest CareCenter my work home, and to be among the first to hear the overflow of praise and appreciation for my colleagues in the field.
Again, we couldn't do it without you. Blessings for 2015 and beyond.
