Hospice of Washington to Host the First Shred and Shop Event

(Hagerstown, MD) – Hospice of Washington County (HWC) is sponsoring the First Annual Shred and Shop Event on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at 747 Northern Avenue in Hagerstown. The event is being sponsored by Jim Gullace and First Home Mortgage.

“First Home Mortgage is honored to sponsor this event,” stated Mr. Gullace. “Hospice of Washington County helps patients and their families by providing quality end-of-life care and grief support for those coping with a life-changing loss. On this day, we are able to help Hospice of Washington County.”

This event will offer community residents the opportunity to shred important confidential documents for a suggested donation of $10 per box and/or shop for treasures at a large yard sale. Shredding will be available from 9 a.m. to noon. The yard sale will take place from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. There are 50 yard sale spaces available. Yard sale spaces are available for $20 per space. All spaces are at a first-come, first-serve basis. Vendors will be responsible to bring their own table and chairs.

In addition, Kona Ice and Antietam Dairy will be on premise.

Hospice of Washington County, Inc. was established in 1980 for the sole purpose of lending support to those facing a terminal illness and their families. A core of caring citizens of Washington County, Maryland gathered to see how they could offer their time and talents to help share the burden of a serious illness for their neighbors. Over the past thirty years, Hospice of Washington County developed into a full service hospice with doctors, registered nurses, certified nursing assistants, professional social workers and spiritual care providers in addition to our many dedicated volunteers. As the exclusive licensed provider of hospice care in Washington County, Maryland, the organization’s goal is to surround the patient and their family with a personal team of professionals who know how to manage even the most difficult situations. HWC currently serves over 200 Washington County residents who live at home with family, in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, group homes and now Doey’s House.
