In the wake of the disaster, NHPCO is supporting the needs of the hospice and palliative care community in the region through a donation to the LMHPCO Flood Relief Fund. Donations to LMHPCO Flood Relief Fund will be matched up to $20,000.
"NHPCO is making this donation and matching fund opportunity available to LMHPCO to support its response and the recovery efforts of local providers," said J. Donald Schumacher, NHPCO president and CEO. "We hope people will consider making donations knowing that a gift will be doubled up to the match amount."
Donations should be made by check payable to LMHPCO and mailed to:
LMHPCO Flood Relief Fund
New Orleans, LA 70116
In true hospice spirit, hospice and palliative care professionals from programs around the country have volunteered their time to care for people at shelters set up in and around Baton Rouge. Activity has been coordinated by LMHPCO and the Homecare Association of Louisiana.
Additional information on efforts in Louisiana is available on the LMHPCO website.
