Scam alert

Once again our community is being targeted by a group called the Hospice Support Fund.

Iowa River Hospice is NOT affiliated with this organization in any way.

This group is headquartered out of Merrifield, Va. They solicited more than $2.5 million last year and over 72 percent of those dollars were spent on fundraising and administration costs! Put simply they are basically raising funds to support their salaries, but playing on your generosity and compassion concerning hospice care.

When you support Iowa River Hospice know that your dollars stay in the communities we serve helping us provide directly for your family, neighbors and friends needing our specialized care. We do our best to utilize your gifts wisely and prudently.

Please consider carefully before donating to any organization, especially those that are not locally managed.

Neighbors Serving Neighbors is what we are honored to do and your help makes that possible.
