TICONDEROGA - Two Ticonderoga Middle School students planned, organized and hosted a pizza party to benefit High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care recently.
The event, sponsored by Sara Plude and Kim Porter as part of their "Survival 101 Class," earned over $181 for hospice in Essex County.
"I want to send a great big thank you to these students for all their hard work," said Cheryl Olson, development coordinator for High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care in Port Henry. "They saw a need and found a way to help."
Since no one is ever denied service because of inability to pay, Hospice relies on the support of individuals, organizations and businesses in the Adirondack communities so that patients with a life limiting illness may spend their final days at home, surrounded by friends and loved ones.
High Peaks Hospice is a not-for-profit healthcare organization dedicated to providing compassionate end-of-life care to patients and their families in all of Essex and Warren Counties and portions of Franklin, St. Lawrence and Hamilton Counties.
Services are available to anyone with a prognosis of six months or less, regardless of ability to pay.
