Prairie Home Hospice and Community Care would like to acknowledge and express a very special “Thank You” to Chapter 33 of our local Disabled American Veterans association. Chapter 33 recently donated $2,000.00 to Prairie Home Hospice and Community Care. These funds will help Prairie Home Hospice purchase keepsake and memorial items for their Veteran patients, assist their Veteran’s with payment if needed, and help provide other services to all of their patients. Prairie Home has always been proud to be a part of the “We Honor Veterans” program and are we so very honored to receive this donation. They are very grateful to Denny Brockman and Chapter 33.
“Prairie Home Hospice and Community Care is a grassroots non-profit organization established by the communities that we serve,” said Plante. “Those communities are still the heart and soul of our organization today. Each year, hundreds of individuals, businesses, and organizations from across Lyon County come together to support our entire organization in so many ways. All of the donations that we receive live up to our commitment of providing compassionate hospice care to those in need, regardless of their ability to fully pay for that care. As the number of patients that we serve continues to grow each year, as we maintain our second hospice home, and now Fieldcrest Assisted Living; any funds donated like this are more important than ever. “We rely so much on the support we receive through our fundraising, memorial, and community donations in order to continue to provide the kind of quality care that patients and their families have come to expect, know, and deserve from Prairie Home Hospice & Community Care; and we are so incredibly grateful for it,” said Pat Mellenthin, CEO of Prairie Home.
