Our clinical care team often encounter patients who lack basic needs that
can interfere with providing care and comfort. Our staff often reach into
their own pockets to ensure our patients and families have things like
food, utilities, supplies, clothing and other basic needs. The new Sunshine
Fund was created to directly address those with special needs.
Our goal is to spread some "Sunshine" while enriching the lives
of our hospice and palliative care patients and their families by relieving
distress and hardship. Administered by a committee of Hospice employees
and community members, this fund is supported entirely by donations. The
Sunshine Fund has no overhead hidden cost, so every dollar you contribute
goes directly to those in need.
The fund is named in memory of Kelly "Sunshine" Gloyd. Jim Gloyd,
owner of a local company, Frederick Line-X, and a fund committee member,
wanted to give back to his community and honor his late wife. The joy
that "Sunshine" spread in her own life will pass on to those in need.
Donations to this fund can be made by check, online or by phone at 240-566-3030.
Gift cards to grocery stores, Walmart, and Target also gratefully accepted.
