An annually anticipated event is set for Thursday.

Southeast Texas Hospice Toilet Paper Tea is from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at 912 West Cherry in Orange.

From reams of paper to cleaning supplies, the event 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, ziplock bags, toilet paper, and paper towels.

Monetary donations are also accepted.

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.

Call the Southeast Texas Hospice office at 409-886-0622 or 800-749-3497 for more information.
