About

LOSS has a simple way to brighten someone's day! National Make a Difference Day is Saturday, October 22nd, 2016 and we are hosting a Care Basket drive! We are asking for donated items that can be included in Care Baskets for those bereaved by suicide. We are also asking for assistance in assembling baskets and resource folders. Our goal is to make 60 baskets and 200 resource packets on Make a Difference Day. Register to participate here: http://franklincountyloss.org/events/loss-care-basket-drive/ And here is a list of items we need! http://www.sokindregistry.org/registry/9353 If you can't donate any items that's okay - come help us assemble baskets and resource folders! Providing someone who was recently bereaved by suicide with a surprise carebasket is kind, compassionate and thoughtful. 178 people died by suicide in 2015 right here in Franklin County. This has left hundreds if not thousands of people to pick up the pieces. Often times suicide grief is very complicated and isolating. Sadly, those who have lost someone to suicide are at a higher risk for experiencing serious psychological pain and suicide attempts.
