(Kootenai County) Bring Cheer to a hospice patient by donating a "Cheer Basket"

Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


We all have hard days and need a little encouragement. Hospice patients face many hard moments with the road they travel. Brighten a hospice patient’s last days by providing comfort items for cheer baskets. "Cheer baskets" are given to hospice patients in need of a little pick me up. These baskets are filled with items listed below that are donated from individuals in the community.

Volunteers also crochet comfort shawls or lap blankets that provide comfort and warmth for our patients. These treasured handmade items bring additional cheer.

We are always in need of the following items:

  • Tea/hot cocoa

  • Granola bars, pudding)
  • Hard candy or small individually wrapped chocolates
