Hospice of Texarkana Marks Fourth Year of Participation in East Texas Giving Day


Hospice of Texarkana is gearing up for East Texas Giving Day to be held on Tuesday, April 30th. The annual online event is held from 6:00 am to midnight, allowing donors across the ArkLaTex to contribute to their favorite non-profit organizations. Last year Hospice of Texarkana made over $20,000 thanks to the generosity of many, with funds allotted to staff education and underfunded care. East Texas Giving Day is sponsored by The East Texas Community Foundation, which was begun in 1989, and the annual fundraising in April benefits 32 counties across East Texas where countless agencies and organizations are able to benefit from the one-day event. Donors may go online now and contribute. Hospice has set a goal of again raising $20,000 and is excited to have an anonymous $10,000 donor match. Cindy Marsh, Executive Director adds, “We don’t want to miss out on this generous $10,000 donor match. We need the support of our community.”
