Kaweah Delta Hospice on Tuesday delivered fresh turkeys and Thanksgiving fixings to 101 families of hospice patients – the most families ever to receive the annual gift.
“These families are facing a tough time during the holiday. This is our gift so they don’t have to go face the hustle and bustle to have a nice family dinner for Thanksgiving,” said Pam Hauschel, Kaweah Delta Hospice’s office lead specialist who has organized the project for the past seven years. “It’s worth it just to see them smile because someone remembered them during this difficult time.”
The Visalia Breakfast Lions Club provides the fresh turkeys and Kaweah Delta Hospice staff, along with other district staff and community organizations including the Tulare County Deputy Sheriff’s Association, provide the fixings.
The hospice is a not-for-profit healthcare organization dedicated to helping patients in Tulare County with end-of-life comfort care.
