The Northern New York Community Foundation (NNYCF) has awarded $1,250 from the George R. Davis Fund to the Friends of Lewis County Hospice/Hospice Memorial Garden. The award was received in August 2021.
Judge R. Davis established a charitable fund with the NNY Community Foundation upon his death in 2010. The funds are given to support projects and initiatives to enhance the quality of life for residents of the village and town of Lowville. The funds we received are targeted to replace the worn corner fencing that has been in the garden for over 20 years.
Friends of Lewis County Hospice is a non-profit organization made up of a 13-member board whose purpose is to support patients and their families during end of life care. We hold numerous fundraisers of all types throughout the year. We support and maintain the Community Hospice Garden in Memorial Park in Lowville; we help pay for Hospice patient care and services by providing funding for comfort care, meals, travel expenses and many other things that can lighten the burden of end of life care. Our goal is to help ensure that those in need, both the patients and their families, will have compassionate Hospice care available to them.
FOLCH advocates for quality palliative and end-of-life care and provides humanitarian and financial resources to the members of the Lewis County community facing the challenges that come with the end-of-life.
