In 2009 founder Margaret Cusack began working with a small but incredibly dedicated group of women, known as The Women of Peace and Hope for Hospice. That year, the group organized its first Christmas Craft Fair in support of Hospice Palliative Care. They have faithfully continued hosting this special event in addition to holding craft-related fundraisers throughout the year. Their most recent donation of $6,000 brings the total of their generous contributions to $35,000 to support the work of the Hospice Palliative Care Society. The Society is indebted to them for their outstanding commitment to the patients and families of those in need of comfort, care and compassion at end-of-life.
