In honor of Georgia Mountains Hospice 25th anniversary, the organization has been giving back to the community and on Nov. 7 they completed another act of service in their 25 Acts of Service mission by volunteering with Ric-Rack food bank and thrift store in Dawsonville.

“We are honored and blessed to have been serving the patients and families of these north Georgia counties during the most difficult time in their lives,” wrote Executive Director Gina Pendley in a press release. “We understand that we would not have been able to continue our mission of quality end of life care for all of these years without the support of our communities, so we are giving back.”

Beginning in July and lasting through December of this year, Georgia Mountains Hospice will be offering their services to nonprofit agencies throughout the 10 counties it serves in north Georgia.

“We would like to come help you stock food in the food pantries, help fill up back packs for kids, make lunches, work your yard sales, whatever your group is doing to further their mission.  We are offering ‘25 Acts of Service’ to show our appreciation to you,” said Pendley.

On Nov. 7, Georgia Mountains Hospice staff and volunteers worked with Ric-Rack food bank and thrift store in downtown Dawsonville to help the nonprofit organization stock its food bank and provide free food to qualified Dawson County residents.

Ric-Rack is staffed from the Church Alliance and funding comes through the thrift store as well as cash and food donations.
