2020 has clearly been an unprecedented year for our organization; in the midst of new and significant challenges, we were able to continue our service to others because of the financial support we received from so many in the communities we serve. While we are always grateful for our community partners, we are especially grateful for all those who supported our mission in 2020. Each gift provided the extra resources that not only helped prevent the disruption of our services but also insured that we were able to provide the same high level of compassionate and dignified care that people have come to expect from Hospice Brazos Valley for over 30 years. As part of the silver lining that is always present in difficult times, financial support arrived this year from unexpected sources. We offer a deep, heartfelt word of appreciation to the Leslie L. Alexander Foundation for its unexpected and profound support. To all who shared their financial support in 2020 we say: Thank you! Because you cared for us, we were able to care for others. You truly occupy a special place in the heart of our organization.
