Hospice Care Plus was awarded a $20,000 grant from the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels (HOKC) to help fund the HVAC Replacement Project at our Compassionate Care Center.

The Kentucky Colonel’s Good Works Grant program awarded $2.5 million in grants to support 325 Kentucky non-profits in 2024.

Commanding General Gary Boschert says, “Every dollar you contribute to the Good Works Program goes to nonprofits in the Commonwealth. Together, we helped support 3.9 million people this year.”

Development coordinator Stefanie Manes accepts the HOKC Good Works Award from retired Kentucky Colonels Board of Trustee General Kevin Doyle.

“We are proud to have been selected as one of the Kentucky Colonel’s Good Works Grant Award recipients for 2024. This grant brings the total raised to $40,000 of the $78,000 needed for our HVAC Replacement Project,” says Stefanie Manes, our development coordinator.

Please consider donating to the fund we’ve created to allow donors to designate their gift to the HVAC replacement project.
