Hospice of the Foothills was able to add shaded and comfortable outdoor seating for patients and families, thanks to the help of Elks Lodge #518 in Nevada City. Eligible for an annual grant through the Elks National Foundation, this year the Elks Lodge chose Hospice of the Foothills as a co-recipient. Mike Blanton spearheaded the grant application process and worked jointly with Hospice of the Foothills to determine how to use the grant to best benefit patients and families.
Hospice of the Foothills is a 501(c) (3) non-profit community-supported healthcare organization that has provided end-of-life hospice and palliative care to patients and families in western Nevada County and surrounding communities for 35 years.
