The San Marcos Community Foundation recently awarded the Escondido based Elizabeth Hospice with a $7,500 grant to provide hospice care to uninsured patients and bereavement support to individuals and families that reside in San Marcos.
“At some point in time, we all will face the loss of a loved one. We appreciate that The Elizabeth Hospice provides confidential, caring help at no charge to people grieving such a loss, right here in our community. It can make a world of difference at an important time in life,” said Colleen R. Lukoff, president of the San Marcos Community Foundation.
“The grant from the San Marcos Community Foundation will help The Elizabeth Hospice to continue its mission in caring for individuals of all ages in need of comprehensive hospice care and grief support services, regardless of their ability to pay,” said Jan Jones, president and CEO of The Elizabeth Hospice.
