Hospice of Michigan receives grant from General Federation of Women's Club in Mecosta County

Hospice of Michigan, the state’s original and largest not-for-profit hospice provider, has received a $1,000 grant from General Federation of Women's Club (GFWC) – Mecosta “Heart of the Lakes.” The grant will benefit Hospice of Michigan’s We Honor Veterans program in Mecosta County and surrounding communities.

 

As a Level IV partner in the We Honor Veterans program, a collaboration through the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization and the Veterans Administration, Hospice of Michigan is specially trained to address the unique needs of veterans at end of life. Throughout the year, Hospice of Michigan organizes special activities/events and partners with community organizations to honor veterans, including pinning ceremonies, award/medal presentations and other last wishes of veteran patients.

 

Veterans account for nearly 25% of Hospice of Michigan’s patients. In 2021, Hospice of Michigan served 188 patients in Mecosta County, with 19% of these patients being veterans.

 

“Hospice of Michigan is specifically trained to support the unique needs of veterans. Providing these brave men and women with quality of life at the end of life is the very least we can do to thank them for their service and sacrifice,” said Roxanne Kiesling, philanthropy manager for Hospice of Michigan. “This grant from the GFWC – Mecosta ‘Heart of the Lakes’ will help us continue to provide the very best care for these heroes who have fought for our freedom.”

 

The GFWC is an international women’s organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service. Hospice of Michigan’s funding source was issued by GFWC – Mecosta “Heart of the Lakes” grant program, which is intended to support community groups in Mecosta County.
