Charity Hospice was chosen, once again, as the recipient of nearly 30 fleece blankets from the Cadette Senior Troop No. 1138, Junior No. 5566, Brownie No. 1009, Daisy No. 1008 from Tiltonsville. Marcie Jarman, one of the troop leaders, said, “The girls really look forward to this project of making blankets for Charity’s patients, as they know how much the patients have appreciated their efforts.” Cathy Cich, founder and CEO of Charity Hospice, said, “We are so blessed to receive these blankets from the girls, as the patients really love them and see it as a gift of love and warmth from the girls.” The youth are contemplating doing another project for the patients, possibly for the Easter season. “Easter is a very special celebration for all of us in hospice,” Cich said, noting, “It reminds us that death is not the end, but leads to the beautiful gift of eternal life.”
