Gift Card Donation from Westlake/Bay Village Rotary Supports Hospice Families

We are grateful for the many ways organizations in our community continue to support our mission at a time when “business as usual” is not always possible due to the pandemic.

The Westlake/Bay Village Rotary Club has found a creative new way to bring comfort and caring to patients and their families at Ames Family Hospice House in Westlake.
“They have generously been providing dinners at Ames Family Hospice House once each quarter for the last few years,” explained Patti Hanrahan, Volunteer Service Manager. “They hire a professional caterer and their members set up, serve the meal and clean up afterwards. The dinners have always been wonderful, and so appreciated by the families in our care.

“Due to the pandemic, they cannot provide this service, but they still had money in their budget and wanted to continue their support. Recently, I met with incoming Rotary President, Ray Glinka, who presented me with a donation of $500 in gift cards. We will give these to our patients and family members to help with their personal or household needs, groceries, meals and patient celebrations. It means a lot to us – and to our patients and families – that our community continues to care.”
