 Who are Hospice Helpers?

 

Hospice-Helpers-Logo_Horizontal-RGB.jpg

Hospice Helpers are companies, schools, community groups and families who organize various fundraising events and activities to benefit Hospice Buffalo.

Why become a Hospice Helper?

All money raised will directly benefit the care of our patients. If you choose, you may select to restrict your Hospice donation to our Hospice Angels Fund or Essential Care for Children. If your event raises $250 or more, we will list it in the following issue of the Hospice newsletter, “Journeys,” circulation 32,000.

What kind of events do Hospice Helpers organize to raise money for Hospice?

Raffles, car shows, bake sales, car washes, golf tournaments, dress down days, etc. Be creative! If your company or organization has a unique idea to raise funds for Hospice Buffalo we want to hear all about it!
