Community of Caring

Community support for the nurse/client relationship through the collection and distribution of non-medical health and safety items

MVNA’s legacy of client support is a process that connectsfamily sitting in a circle in discussion the community to its members in need. Non-medical health and safety items are donated to Community of Caring, funneled to MVNA and hospice staff who then give it to clients based on identified needs to support their plan of care. The acquisition of necessary items relies on the involvement of the larger community – YOU!

With your help, Community of Caring is able to provide and meet the basic needs of clients during difficult times. Our five most needed items are:

  1. Gift cards to local grocery and retail stores
  2. Diapers sizes newborn to 6
  3. Sheet sets for extra long twin, full and queen sizes
  4. Cash donations, which are used to purchase items from wholesalers at reduced prices (items include: portable cribs to promote safe sleep, weight scales and smoke and carbon monoxide detectors)

Interested in helping? Here’s a couple ways to get involved:

Volunteer

Volunteers are vital to our program, from administrative support to building kits to maintaining our storehouse.

Send a monetary donation

We can purchase many items in bulk i.e. portable cribs, weight scales. Cash donations also allow us to address unique needs.
