During the month of February, several local banks are hosting the annual “Hearts for Hospice” fundraising event.

When you visit a participating bank in the lobby or at the drive-through, you will have the opportunity to request a memorial heart for a donation of at least one dollar. Donors write their name or the name of the person they are remembering on the heart. Banks will display the hearts throughout the month.

Help us raise awareness by tagging Hospice Care Plus on your social media platforms and use #heartsforhospice when you share a photo of your memorial heart.

All proceeds from Hearts for Hospice support hospice, palliative, and bereavement care in Estill, Jackson, Lee, Madison, Owsley, and Rockcastle counties, funding care regardless of insurance status or ability to pay.
