2020 Annual Campaign asks for your support

We want to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting Cedar Valley Hospice for more than 40 years. While much has changed in our world due to COVID-19, compassion will not be quarantined. Making Each Moment Matter continues to be our primary goal, and so we ask you to consider a donation to the 2020 Annual Campaign. These financial gifts will help sustain us during these difficult times and allow us to continue our important work.

Currently, we are serving more patients, families and clients than ever in our history. The Challenges we face at this time have shown us how strong our staff, volunteers and donors are. With proper precautions in place, we continue to provide: 

  • Expert end-of-life care to patients, clients and families, regardless of age, diagnosis or ability to pay 
  • Expanded medical and emotional support through our Hospice Home, Link Palliative Care and CASS(Cedar Aids Support System)
  • Support to caregivers during and after a loved one's dying and death 
  • Grief support and counseling to anyone in the communities we serve affected by death - with anticipated increase of needs due to isolation and loss of grieving rituals because of COVID-19

During this unprecedented time, we have taken steps to keep everyone safe by canceling our public events, moving grief groups to virtual platforms and postponing our summer grief camp for children. We've moved most of our staff members to remote work and closed our office lobbies all in an effort to protect our communities while continuing to serve any patient, family or client that needs us. Unfortunately, several of our spring and summer fundraisers have had to be canceled, making your financial support more important than ever.

Because of generous donors like you our focus remains steadfast. Even a pandemic will not keep us from fulfilling our mission: To enrich lives with knowledge, respect and compassionate care. Remember that we are here for you and your loved ones. The most important thing is to take care of yourselves, social distance and check in on those that you care for. Together, we will get through this!

Gratefully,

Michaela Vandersee, Executive Director
Chris Kemp, Governing Board President
