Lawrence, MA – The Kingston Veterans Club recently presented Merrimack Valley Hospice with a generous gift in honor of the compassionate care provided to members and their families this past year. The $500.00 gift was presented by club member Greg Queene at the agency’s annual Candles of Remembrance ceremony held at the Renaissance Country Club in Haverhill, MA.
“So many people come together at Candles of Remembrance to celebrate the lives of those they have lost. Many choose to make a donation in support of Merrimack Valley Hospice as a way to pay tribute to those who have passed and to help others receive hospice care when needed,” said Donna Deveau, Vice President of External Relations and Development for Home Health Foundation. “We are touched that the Kingston Veterans Club chooses to make their annual gift at this event, to honor the lives of our US Veterans who served this country and to help support the services that we provide to their members and the community. This is such a meaningful gift.”
The Kingston Veterans Club was established in 1946 by a local group of returning, WWII veterans. They coordinate a variety of annual fundraising activities to support local community organizations and veteran services.
