Three Words, One Powerful Reminder
Pause. Reflect. Remember. We chose these words as the theme for the year-end appeal because all of us need to deliberately slow down a little during the frantic days that mark the end of the year. Pause for a moment. Reflect on the season. Remember those you love. Each year we provide charity care and patient enrichment programs, made possible through your generosity. Consider making a gift to the year-end appeal today. You can make a genuine difference by calling 855.475.0245 or visiting hospicewr.org/pause.
