Published 12:52 pm Saturday, November 25, 2017

While scheduled later than normal, the Southeast Texas Hospice Toilet Paper Tea Open House will be 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., Thursday, December 14 at 912 W. Cherry Ave. in Orange.

“There is so much going on the Thursday before, we thought we would hold it a week later this year,” Mary McKenna said.

The annual tradition helps bring awareness to the organization as well as assisting with helping assist a group, which has helped so many families in Orange County.

Southeast Texas Hospice care provider provides hospice care, an infusion of home care and facility care provided to benefit terminally ill patients and support their families through their tough times.

The purpose of the fundraiser is to assist the organization through the donation of supplies and goods, so it can better serve its clients by utilizing more of the hospice budget to provide more care for terminally ill patients and their families.

Donations typically include items such as office cleaning supplies or operation items, such as light bulbs, large plastic bags, coffee, creamer, sugar, dishwasher soap, toilet bowl cleaner, liquid hand soap, staples, black pens, scratch pads and index cards.

Other items donated can include paper clips, glue sticks, white out, folder labels, and toilet paper and paper towels.

Refreshments will be served during the event as guests bring donations and socialize with one another.

The hospice memorial Dove of Peace tree will be on display as well.

Each dove placed upon the tree carries the name of a loved one and can be placed on the tree for a donation of $10 or more. Funds from the Doves are used for the Adopt-A-Family Program to help a needy terminally ill family.
