SOTV Donates Cards to Presbyterian Homes (May 2020)

(May 2020) “The cards are nearly all distributed now. Many of our Hospice nurses are taking them on their patient visits to help cheer them up. Everyone loves them and they are quickly becoming a hot commodity. Please share our gratitude with your creative members and SOTV friends who have taken the time to share their gift with others.”

“Each card is so lovely and unique; they will be cherished. We do have a need for cards that are blank on the inside, if that’s a possibility, also. Our nurses would like to help patients send greetings to their family and friends who are not able to visit regularly.”

Thanks from Optage Hospice (Optage® is the home & community services division of Presbyterian Homes & Services)
