American Legion of New Berlin donates to Evangelical Hospice

The Daily Item

— NEW BERLIN — American Legion Post 957 of New Berlin recently presented Evangelical Community Hospital a check for $11,754 to support the Evangelical Hospice program. Each year, Legion Post 957 gives back by supporting community outreach efforts that make an impact on the lives of others. Evangelical Hospice was selected as a recipient of the Legion’s support because of the Hospice does in the community and the ways in which they care for families and friends when they have to say goodbye to a loved one.

Evangelical Hospice is a program of specially trained individuals who dedicate themselves to easing the pain and suffering of the terminally ill and their families through supportive care. Volunteers visit with patients and families, provide bereavement services, and assist in the Hospice office. No healthcare experience is required to become a Hospice volunteer. For more information about the Hospice program or becoming a volunteer, call 522-2550.
