United Hospice Service Receives Generous Spare Change Donation 

United Hospice Service of Marlette Regional Hospital is appreciative of all of the donations we receive. So far this year, donations have been down — but recently we received a different kind of monetary donation. A very heavy, over half-filled, five-gallon bucket of spare change was donated by the family of a patient we recently had the privilege to care for. The collection of pocket change had been growing for quite some time and to our surprise, the bucket of coins totaled just over $1,000. We would like to thank the family for allowing us to care for their loved one, and for their very generous donation which will allow us to continue serving our local thumb communities. We would also like to thank Tri-County Bank in Marlette for agreeing to sort and count thousands of coins.

Monetary donations like these are used for items such as specialty equipment, patient’s utilities, room and board fees at the hospice residence, grief support functions, anything that might be needed to go above and beyond to make the end-of-life journey more comfortable. United Hospice Service is the only non-profit hospice service in the thumb, which means when you donate to UHS, your funds stay local, and benefit those families who live in our communities.

These ‘little things’ we do can add up to make a BIG difference for local families in their time of need. Do you have spare change to donate?
