ASHLAND -- The trustees of the Mohican Area Community Fund have approved a grant in the amount of $1,000 for Hospice of North Central Ohio.
The grant is made possible through the successful completion of MACF’s annual fund-raising campaign which provides support to local charities and non-profit organizations which serve the Greater Mohican community.
The grant will be used to support HNCO’s “Camp Hope” children’s bereavement camp. The four-day camp is help annually in June for children ages 6 to 17 at Pleasant Hill campgrounds.
HNCO created “Camp Hope” in 1996 to address a growing need to provide grieving children in the area with a safe and supportive environment to express their feelings and share their story. Since its inception, “Camp Hope” has served the needs of over 1,000 grieving children who have experienced the loss of a loved one through death.
“This grant will have an immediate impact on supporting the work of a dedicated team of professional staff and trained volunteers who help facilitate this special camp. HNCO could not provide 'Camp Hope' free-of-charge without the generous support of charitable gifts and grants. We are certainly grateful for the continued support of the MACF,” said Ralph Tomassi, HNCO’s Chief Development Officer.
As the area’s oldest and largest non-profit hospice organization, Hospice of North Central Ohio has served thousands of families with compassionate end-of-life and Palliative care, bereavement programs and services since 1988. Headquartered at 1021 Dauch Drive in Ashland, Hospice of North Central Ohio serves more than 200 patients daily in Ashland, Crawford, Huron, Knox, Morrow, and Richland counties who are living with chronic and terminal illnesses.
Additionally, free continuous bereavement services are provided for hundreds of families of hospice patients and to anyone in the community experiencing grief.
