Lower Cape Fear HospiceLower Cape Fear Hospice recently received a $3,500 grant from Four County Electric Membership Corporation’s Operation Round Up TRUST Fund. The grant will be used to purchase three publications for hospice patients and families in Bladen, Columbus, Duplin, Pender, and Sampson counties: “Hard Choices for Loving People,” “When Death is Near”, and “Gone from My Sight.”

“These publications are invaluable to family members facing the loss of a loved one,” Laurie Taylor, LCFH vice president of development, said. “Many of our families comment on how useful the little blue book, “Gone from My Sight,” is in helping them understand their loved one’s end-of-life journey. We are grateful to Four County Electric for this grant so we can provide these books to our hospice families.”

Operation Round Up provides assistance for Four County members with unexpected crisis situations, and funds nonprofits that provide services and support for Four County members. The TRUST is funded by Four County members who elect to have their bills rounded up to the next whole dollar amount each month.

Lower Cape Fear Hospice is a nonprofit agency that provides healthcare and comfort to people with advanced illnesses; support and counseling to families; and education in Bladen, Brunswick, Columbus, New Hanover, Onslow and Pender counties in North Carolina, and Horry County in South Carolina.
