Every December Mercy Hospice volunteers take time out of their schedules to give back by baking cookies and making cookie trays for the patients that are served by Mercy Hospice.

Since July of 2012 Mercy Hospice has served patients and families within a 50-mile radius needing end of life care. Each December volunteers take time to bake and or purchase cookies and prepare cookie trays. All kinds of cookies from no bake, sugar, snickerdoodle, oatmeal and chocolate chip to name a few that are brought in to make a great assortment for the cookie trays for our patients and families. This year, 57 dozen cookies were donated.

Along with the cookies, patients are given a blanket and a copy of the holiday edition of The Daily Bread. When delivered. “This is one way that all of our volunteers can participate and give back to the patients,” said LaShawn Noel, Volunteer Coordinator and Social Worker.

As we move forward in the coming months our name will soon change, as we have partnered with Integrity Home Care + Hospice to continue to provide end of life care in our community. Although the name will be different our staff and our service will continue to be the same.” Rebecca Davied, Director of Mercy Home Health and Hospice. “We want to thank the community for its ongoing support this last six year.”
