West Chester Evening Branch of the Women's Auxiliary to Chester County Hospital in Support of Neighborhood Health
For more than 101 years, the non-profit Neighborhood Hospice, a branch of Chester County Hospital's Neighborhood Health, has been providing quality compassionate care to thousands of residents in Chester County Hospital and surrounding communities. Our region is growing at an incredible rate and that growth creates an increased demand for hospice services. Neighborhood Hospice has not held back, they continue to provide vital services regardless of a patient's ability to pay. However, just when it is needed most, federal funding for hospice programs has been drastically reduced and Neighborhood Hospice needs our help.
Chester County Hospital's West Chester Evening Auxiliary invites you to join us in our fundraising efforts by supporting this year's "Remembering Our Angels" appeal. For a contribution of $35.00, one beautiful, die-cut angel ornament will be personalized with the name of one special person you would like to remember. This year's ornament was designed based on artwork donated by nationally recognized Chester County artist and resident, Dennis Minch.
All proceeds from "Remembering Our Angels" will support Neighborhood Hospice Inpatient and In Home Services. Your donation will help provide the financial resources so important to the team of healthcare professionals at Neighborhood Health as they continue to provide physical, psychological, social and spiritual services to patients and their families. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
Join us as we share in the season of giving within our family community. All donors are invited to attend a memorial service and Angel Tree Lighting to be held at the Church of the Loving Shepherd, 1066 South New Street, West Chester, PA 19382, Sunday, December 6, 2015, at 3:00 pm (snow date December 13, 2015), where attendees will be invited to hang their personalized ornaments on the Angel Tree. At the conclusion of this service, the personalized angels will be transported back to Neighborhood Hospice to adorn the two trees in the family lounge area for everyone to enjoy.
If you plan on attending this service, please RSVP on the attached response slip by December 1, 2015. If you cannot attend, your personalized ornament will be placed on the trees at Neighborhood Hospice by our volunteers. We will continue to place ornaments on the trees throughout the holiday season. For further information, please call me at 610-430-1698.
Best wishes to you and your family as you remember the angels in your life.

West Chester Evening Auxiliary
HOW YOUR SUPPORT HELPS
"Our mother's hospice nurse became indispensable to us. She was kind, thoughtful and skilled and we could not have asked for better care. When we really needed her, when our mother could no longer get out of bed or be cared for at home, she was a Godsend. She came immediately and arranged for Mom to get a bed in the hospice facility. We simply could not have coped without her. Our thanks, also, go to the social workers, the home hospice aid, the chaplain and all of the nurses and nurse practitioners at the hospice facility. We wanted to thank you all so very much for the care and kindness you gave our Mother and to us over the months. Everyone worked hard on her behalf, despite the most wretched winter in living memory - we owe you so much. In short, everyone at Neighborhood Hospice did an exemplary job in caring for our mother in her last days. We will be indebted to you for a long time to come. We only hope that, when it comes time for us to need assistance, there are caring and compassionate workers like you to whom we can turn.
Thank you again,
Terry, Kathy and Anne Wickham
