Default AUGUST 2012 MISSION ~ CARDS FOR A CAUSE

2012 Cards for A Cause
~ AUGUST MISSION ~
Stamp from the Heart!


ORGANIZATION BEING FEATURED:

Hospice of St. Francis

This month we are featuring Hospice of St. Francis. Our cards will be donated to brighten the days of patients.

Hospice of St. Francis is an independent, not-for-profit organization that provides quality, compassionate care to patients and families facing life-limiting illness. The goal of hospice care is to maximize quality of life based on the patientís choices. We provide medical, social, spiritual and physical care to patients at home, whether that home is a nursing home, assisted living or private residence. This care is provided as long as the patient wants and needs hospice care, regardless of age, race, gender, color, national origin, handicap or ability to pay.

Hospice of St. Francis was established in 1977 and was named for the Patron Saint who was known not only for his love of animals but for his devotion to consoling the dying. Our hospice was the first hospice established in Brevard County Florida, and the second in the entire state.

TYPE OF CARDS REQUESTED:

Birthday cards! They can use birthday cards for men and women, larger cards are easier for them to handle and read, but they will use any that are donated. Blank inside is best and a lighter background makes it easier for the senior patients to see the writing. Envelopes are appreciated but not required.

In addition to birthday cards, they would also LOVE to have patriotic-themed cards to send to the Veteran patients to thank them for their service, acknowledge special holidays like Veteranís Day, or for birthdays. These could be blank inside and they will personalize them as needed, but good old RED, WHITE AND BLUE, STARS AND STRIPES, EAGLES, etc, would be awesome! Their patients who are Veterans really appreciate being acknowledged, and this would help them do that.


SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS:
