Northland Fundraising for Hospice Angels Foundation Compassus Hospice Angels Image

For February, our branches are raising funds for the Compassus/Hospice Angels Foundation. Hospice Angels provides services for those in need in our branch communities by assisting families in need in various ways. These are just a few of the ways that Hospice Angels help assist families with housing issues, help with utility bills, or provide transportation needs. Stop by any of our branch locations to assist a family in need by making your donation – no amount is too small!
