Hospice raises funds, hosts Kenyan staff

June 10, 2011

Hospice of Washington County hosted a fundraiser on Saturday, April 9, at Hamilton Nissan on the Dual Highway in Hagerstown.

During the event, Mildred Omondi and Eric Amisi, two staff members from Coast Hospice of Mombasa, Kenya, talked about hospice care in Mombasa, Kenya throughout the day. Washington County staff talked about local services.

Additionally, a fundraising event — Kilometers for Kenya —  raised money to buy a vehicle for Coast Hospice. Donations were accepted throughout the day, plus Hamilton Nissan made donations for each test drive and car sale that took place that day.

The Kilometers for Kenya Campaign has raised more than $4,000 so far; additional gifts will be accepted.
