Thank You to our 2018 Peaches for Hospice Volunteers and Sponsors!

As our annual Fresh Palisade Peaches for Hospice fundraiser wrapped up on August 18, 2018, TRU HNC extends gratitude to the many patients, families, and community members we serve for making the event a success.  This year we sold more than 500 boxes of peaches and raised over $23,000 that will support patient care in Weld and Larimer counties. Moving 500 peach boxes in one morning requires a lot of muscle and planning, and we are extremely grateful for the 29 volunteers that showed up bright and early to take on the task. Together our volunteers put in over 103 hours to make this event run smoothly. In addition to our amazing volunteers, TRU HNC would like to recognize our event sponsor:s Superior Towing, RCC Medical Supply, Stoddard Funeral Home, 50 Plus Marketplace, and Hubbard Family Dental Hygiene Clinic. White Orchards in Palisade Colorado has been providing the peaches for the past nine years. Owner Ray White, a longtime hospice supporter says, “Working with Hospice keeps the peaches rolling out the door and helps people receive the care they need. It's been a great experience to work with TRU HNC and see how the community pulls together to make it happen. I’m proud to provide quality peaches each year."
