The local community contributed more than $153,000 at Community Home Health & Hospice’s charity care fundraiser, A Taste of Tuscany. More than 450 guests “partied with a purpose” to support Community’s charity care program. Charity care includes patient care for uninsured/underinsured patients demonstrating financial need, community grief care for anyone who has lost a loved one under any circumstances, and support services for veterans in their last days of hospice, and more. Last year, Community spent $663,812 on charity care.
“On behalf of families these funds will support, we thank everyone who played a part in this year’s success lead by volunteer co-chairs Kirsten Amrine and Rhonda Sandretto. We couldn’t do it without our generous community, volunteers and staff. The support from the event is testament to our mission,” said President & CEO Greg Pang.
