2021 Heroes of Hospice Gala on the Go

A Fresh Start

February 2021
 
It’s time for a fresh start. Throughout the past year, we have learned so much. We have endured so much. For us at Hospice of Anchorage, we embrace 2021 but are so proud of what we accomplished during the pandemic. Like most of us, 2020 forced us into innovation. 2020 forced us to look at our policies and procedures. 2020 forced us to identify how to compassionately care for those in our service and take care of the community we’ve grown to love.
 
When we had to cancel our Heroes of Hospice gala last year, we didn’t know what our future would bring. We didn’t know if our small nonprofit would survive Covid-19. But you had our back. Many of you had already committed to supporting our largest fundraiser of the year. We reached out to ask you what to do with your sponsorship. “Keep it.” “You need it.” “Do good things with it.” So, we did. We made lemonade out of lemons.
  
Because of your donations and other Covid-related funding, check out what we accomplished in 2020!
Hospice of Anchorage

Spark of Joy – a weekly mailing/delivery program to our patients and their families. This program allowed us to collaborate with multiple small, local businesses to bring joy to our patients when Covid compromised our in-person visit.

Hospice of Anchorage

Hospice of Anchorage Resource Center – the pandemic allowed us to spend focused attention on renewing this long dreamed of project. The cornerstone of the Resource Center is our library. We have hundreds of books available to the community free of charge. Books are available in each of the following subjects: caregiving, child loss, children's grief, chronic illness, dementia, end of life, grief, and life review/after a death planning.

Hospice of Anchorage

Loan Closet – the DME needs of the community didn't stop because of Covid. Folks still needed wheelchairs, commodes, incontinence supplies, and more. With a new, curbside pick-up and drop-off, we could meet our community's immediate needs safely. 

Hospice of Anchorage

Electronic Medical Record – say goodbye to paper charts. Generous support from the business community enabled us to shred our paper charts and move to our first-ever electronic case management program. 

Hospice of Anchorage

Navigating the Holidays – a well-loved tradition every November at Hospice of Anchorage is to partner with all the hospices in town and put on an event called "Navigating the Holidays," available for free to anyone in this community who wants a little help after having lost a loved one. This year we boxed up Navigating the Holidays and delivered it right to the homes of those in need.

Please help us to continue fulfilling our mission.

While there won't be a gala for you to attend this year, our need for your support is more significant than ever. What will you get in return?
  • If you’re an organization, we’d love to deliver lunch to you and offer a Zoom presentation to your staff about our services. The more people aware of our services, the better!
  •  If you’re an individual or family donor, we’d like to invite you to our office for a safe, socially-distant meal and a chance to meet our staff – it’s a way for you to see first-hand how your support is impacting our community.
  •  All campaign supporters will be featured on our website, on our Facebook page, in a press release, and our e-newsletters
