Spring has sprung – and we’re seeing yellow!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank every person who participated in the annual daffodil fundraiser for the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association’s Hospice and Palliative Care program. 50 volunteers logged a total of 132 hours for this event. We had over 150 local businesses participate in our presales and had 7 local retailer partners provide space for us on our sale day, the first day of Spring!

We are so happy that year after year we are able to bring back this fundraiser across the valley. This year we painted our towns yellow with 5,000 daffodils. If you missed out on your chance to get a bunch, don’t worry, we’ll be increasing our order next year. We made some small changes to the fundraiser this year, like going “green” with our wrapping style and using our Rollingstone Respite House as a home base for all activities. Do you want to get on our presale list or do you have comments/suggestions? Send a quick email to dlacy@blog.northwestcoloradohealth.org.

As the only hospice provider in Routt and Moffat counties, the money raised at this event is critical to helping our organization offer end-of-life care as well as grief support groups for children and adults, bereavement care and community outreach in both counties. Thank you for supporting us and the families we care for.
