Camp Good Grief receives grant from Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation
Hospice by the Sea recently received a grant award of $4,390 from Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation to help fund Camp Good Grief for children and teens who are dealing with the loss of a loved one.
“Camp Good Grief provides an incredibly important and beneficial program for children who are dealing with the loss of a loved one,” said Jan Savarick, president of the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation. “Grief is a normal and necessary reaction to such a loss, and is an important component of emotional health. We’re very pleased to support this wonderful program, which allows children to express their feelings in a loving and supportive environment.”
Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt subsidiary of Boca Raton Regional Hospital, providing high quality, compassionate medical care for almost 50 years. Through grants to community organizations, the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation funds an array of programs and services that promote healthy lifestyles, health education and disease prevention. The community outreach programs touch thousands of lives and reflect the overriding principal that guided the creation of Boca Raton Regional Hospital almost a half-century ago: to provide top quality healthcare to the community it serves. Initiated in 1998 by the Hospital Board of Trustees, the Community Outreach program today consists of health and wellness programs, Foundation grants and community sponsorships.
