Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Throughout history, thousands of men and women have served in the United States military armed forces. Putting aside regard for themselves and leaving behind family and friends, they chose to defend our coUntry and its ideals. Peace, freedom, justice, opportunity and individualism are just dreams without someone to turn these ideals into reality.
At Crossroads Hospice, we want to recognize the sacrifices that many of our patients have made in serving their country. In doing so, we have created a Veterans Recognition Program. Interested volunteers would present a Certificate of Appreciation to Veterans who are receiving care from Crossroads Hospice and spend time sharing their experiences in the armed forces.
We have patients in Philadelphia, Bucks, Montgomery, Chester and Delaware counties.
