Review for Hospice Care Foundation, Missoula, MT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My first interaction with the Hospice Care Foundation was in the Fall of 2010 through my place of work in Missoula. I am the Director of Catering at a local hotel and I had inquired about placing a BID on their 2011 Annual Ball and began to create relationships with the individuals involved. We were not chosen to cater the event, but did have other opportunities to work with the organization and the committee memebers.

During this same time, my Grandmother had began to use Hospice Care (not in Missoula), and we got to know the individuals that vounteered and took care of her. If it weren't for the people who support these organizations and their services, there would be so many of our loved ones without the care that they need in their last moments of life. The Hospice Care Foundation is an organization that provides support to local hospice care facilities within the community. By helping to reduce the high costs on the families and/or patients who may not have the necessary resources needed in obtaining this kind of care, they offer a service that is so valuable to the patient and their family.

People from all walks of life and all different backgrounds gathered for an evening of dancing, eating, and supporting a great cause.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The only change that I would make for the organization is to find a more effective way to get the Hospice Care Foundation name in more people's mouths all year long, and not only during the time of the Ball.
