Community Hospice Celebrates 40 Year Anniversary with Supporter Driven Fundraising Campaign

(January 22, 2019) Modesto, CA – In celebration of Community Hospice’s 40 Year Anniversary, the Community Hospice Foundation is excited to kickoff a 40/40 Campaign! During 2019, the 40/40 Campaign will empower Community Hospice supporters to create their own fundraiser events to raise funds to support the mission of Community Hospice.

“Community members often ask how they can support Community Hospice,” mentioned Melissa Van Diepen, Executive Director of the Community Hospice Foundation. “This campaign will allow participants to raise funds in a way that is meaningful to them and support the members of their community.”

Community Hospice Foundation is recruiting 40 teams to participate in the campaign. A team may consist of co-workers, friends, families, organizations or companies; anyone who is willing to raise funds and help support the patients, families and programs of Community Hospice.

Team members will be provided a fundraising website as well as essential tools, including email templates and event ideas, to help participants reach a team goal of $1,600.

“The 40/40 Campaign has the potential raise $64,000 and impact our community in many positive ways,” added Van Diepen. “The funds raised through this project ensure that Community Hospice is always ready to answer the call when a family needs us, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”
