The Hospice of Acadiana Christmas Ornament Sale is underway!

Hospice of Acadiana is the oldest and ONLY local non-profit hospice in Acadiana; an organization of compassionate, well-trained professionals, support staff, and volunteers who provide a comprehensive program of medical care, counseling, and spiritual direction to persons with life-threatening conditions and their families.

When Hospice of Acadiana, Inc. was established in 1983, one of the guiding principles was a pledge to accept all medically eligible patients, regardless of their ability to pay for services. Since that time, they have dedicated them selves to compassionate care for the dying as a form of community ministry rather than as a business and they have set quality of care, not financial reward, as the ultimate measure of their success. Hospice of Acadiana serves the Heart of Acadiana, and now you can help support Hospice!

The annual Hospice of Acadiana Christmas Ornament sale is underway.  You can buy these beautiful ornaments for your own tree, and you can buy them to give as gifts.  Thanks to an underwriting this year by Home Bank, 100% off your purchase will go directly to Hospice, as Home Bank is going to pay for ALL of the "overhead" associated with this fundraiser.

Myrtis Ashley was in the studio with us this morning, and brought a sample of the ornaments that Hospice of Acadiana is selling:
