Hospice of the Golden Isles is so proud of the work our volunteers do here at hospice and throughout the community. Recently, three of our hospice volunteers Rick Caauwe, Harry Easterling, and James Vivenzio, who is also a board member, escorted local veterans on the Honor Flight to Washington, DC by serving as their guardians for the trip. “This is our fourth year for Honor Flight. We had 75 veterans and 75 guardians make the trip, and we are already getting people to sign up for next year. For me, this is such a meaningful experience. In a true sense for me, the best part is being part of something bigger than myself, just like the feeling I get when I serve as a volunteer for Hospice of the Golden Isles,” says Vivenzio.

Here at HGI, we feel it’s our privilege to serve our veterans and are proud to partner with We Honor Veterans.

We are beaming with pride right now! Not only is Hospice of the Golden Isles the ONLY hospice in Georgia to earn the prestigious Hospice Honors from HEALTHCAREfirst for six years in a row, we are also the ONLY hospice in the Southeast Georgia to receive Hospice Honors Elite in 2018. This is our second time receiving Hospice Honors Elite. Hospice Honors is a distinguished program that recognizes hospices providing the highest level of quality of care as measured from the caregiver’s point of view. Our goal every day is to provide the best care, compassion, and support that all of our patients and families deserve in our service area of Glynn, Camden, McIntosh, Brantley, and Charlton counties. So, this award is especially meaningful for our team to receive. Special thanks to Andre Jesequel for donating his time and talents capturing our team’s celebration in this video. https://youtu.be/uW3MdYUir-U
It’s time to clean out your closets for Spring! A great way to feel good about what you are removing from your wardrobe is to donate your old favorites to our Hospice of the Golden Isles account at Mixed Nuts. 85 % of the sales will go directly to HGI. So, now that you have more room in your closet, go shopping at Mixed Nuts and 100% of the sales of the featured items will go to HGI. And, those donations are really adding up. On Nov. 12, 2018, Charlene Stahl the store’s owner (shown in middle), and Jacki Albright (shown on the left) presented a check to Patty Crosby, VP of Development of Hospice of the Golden Isles for $2,000. So far, they’ve contributed more than $6,000. Thank you ladies for all you are doing to help Hospice of the Golden Isles and our non-profit mission of caring for our neighbors in Glynn, Camden, McIntosh, Brantley, and Charlton counties regardless of ability to pay.The fur coat shown below sold in December and raised $375 for HGI. The featured sales item for February is this Judith Lieber clutch purse which retails for $1195.00. But, you can buy it for $375.
