FORT MYERS, Fla. – LSI Companies has joined Hope Healthcare in the movement to give “More Hope” to those in need through a $40,000 donation for hospice care.
Last fall, Hope launched the campaign to help replace funds that were loss due to the pandemic and cancelled fundraising events that generate critical funding for hospice services. Through the generous support of LSI Companies as well as donations from nearly 500 other patrons, the More Hope campaign is nearing halfway to its $500,000 goal.
“It is with great appreciation that LSI Companies can team up with Hope to provide assistance to those who need it most,” said Justin Thibaut, president of LSI Companies. “Through fundraising campaigns such as “More Hope,” those in life’s closing chapter can receive the compassionate support they need.”
The not-for-profit health care organization cares for 4,000 people each day throughout five Southwest Florida counties and provides more than $2.5 million in unfunded hospice care each year. Last year, Hope provided care and comfort to more than 6,000 hospice patients and their loved ones as they fulfilled life’s journey.
“As one of our committed partners, LSI Companies continues to deeply reflect and embody the values of Hope and the community,” said Samira Beckwith president and CEO of Hope Healthcare. “We are grateful for their support as we provide essential care and services to all who need Hope’s care.”
Additional generous donors to the More Hope campaign include: Big 8 BBQ, Case Pearlman, Edison National Bank, Florida Blue/Brown & Brown Insurance, Jason’s Deli of Southwest Florida, McGriff Insurance Services, Markham, Norton, Mosteller, Wright & Company, P.A., The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company, Walmart, and William E. Cross Foundation.
