Thanks to all for help with holiday dinner

Serenity Hospice & Home has been the fortunate recipient of several United Way “Days of Caring” over the past couple of years.

Projects are posted on the United Way volunteer website, and willing volunteers sign up to provide assistance to area nonprofits. Some area organizations even offer their employees an opportunity to volunteer on a project during a work day in support of United Way’s Day of Caring program. 

On Dec. 4, Watt Publishing sent a team of volunteers to help decorate the Serenity Home for Christmas. In fact, it has become a tradition for a team from Watt Publishing to help brighten the days of patients and families staying or visiting the Serenity Home year after year.

Volunteers decorated nine unique Christmas trees and placed holiday decorations throughout the facility. Each year, staff look forward to working with the good-natured and compassionate team from Watts.

Additionally, volunteers, staff, patients, and visitors were entertained by lovely guitar and vocals by Tita Roach, a hospice volunteer.

Serenity Hospice and Home extends a warm thank you to those individuals for giving of themselves and bringing joy to our staff, patients, and families this holiday season.

Note to readers: Lynn Knodle is the executive director of Serenity Hospice and Home.
