Dear Friend,

You have touched the lives of nearly 6,800 people in Rhode Island through your support of Hope Hospice & Palliative Care Rhode Island this year.

But if it had been only one person facing a serious illness who felt your compassion, or only one family who helped deal with the pain of losing a loved one, I am sure you would agree that your support was worth sharing with those neighbors.

Thanks to Hope Hospice supporters like you, patients and families facing life's most difficult challenges are not alone during the holidays or any other time of the year.

You enable our staff to provide compassionate, comprehensive 24/7 care wherever patients need it - at their own home, in nursing homes and assisted living communities, in hospitals or in our Philip Hulitar Hospice Center. You also help provide specialized counseling for caregivers and grief support services for all families in our community who are grieving the death of a loved one.

The funds we raise at the end of this year will keep Hope Hospice ready to assist all families who turn to us in the coming year for crucial programs and services.

Your year-end gift will help ensure everyone in our community who needs hospice care can get it.

If you recently made a contribution, thank you for your kindness. But if you haven't yet had a chance to send your year-end gift, please make an online donation via the below form by December 31 or sooner so your contribution will count as a tax-deductible gift in 2017. Click here for a mail-in form.

However you choose to give, please be as generous as possible. And on behalf of our entire staff, I send warm wishes for a Happy New Year.


Diana Franchitto
President & CEO
