VIATRAN SELLS BIG FOR HOSPICEby Mandy Raff
Viatran Corporation, a Dynisco company based out of Wheatfield, NY recently hosted a Chiavetta's Barbeque fundraiser in support of the programs and services of Niagara Hospice. With the support of the community and their vendors, employees raised a staggering total of over $5,000 that was donated to Niagara Hospice.
Niagara Hospice provides end-of-life comfort, care and support to Niagara County individuals and families faced with end-of-life illness. Hospice services include physical, emotional, spiritual, and bereavement care. Hospice care is appropriate for any advanced stage illness, not just cancer, where the prognosis is a life expectancy of approximately six months or less. No one is ever denied hospice care due to ability to pay. For more information or to find out how you can be part of the mission of hospice care, call (716) 439-4417 or visit the website at www.NiagaraHospice.org.
