Sponsor A Holiday  Dinner For Hospice CC
   This year Hospice Cleveland County will again order Holiday dinners for their patients and families who need them. The complete dinners include an 8-10 lb. Ham or Turkey, 3 sides, home style rolls and dessert and will serve 6 - 8 people. As Hospice plans their own holiday celebrations, they are reminded that many of their Hospice families will be unable to celebrate as they may have in the past. Often, there is simply not enough money, energy, and/or desire to get a holiday meal prepared. Complete dinners are approximately $50 each. Any contribution will be appreciated. If you would like to help sponsor a Holiday dinner for a patient and their family, please mail your donation to: Hospice Cleveland County, C/O Holiday Dinner 951 Wendover Heights Dr., Shelby, NC 28150. You may order In Honor or In Memory of a loved one. We sincerely appreciate your compassionate concern for those in need.
