The Community Foundation of Grundy County has announced that Joliet Area Community Hospice is the 18th recipient of a $1,000 grant celebrating CFGC's 20th anniversary.
Joliet Area Community Hospice (JACH) is a hospice, palliative care, and bereavement services agency committed to those who need their services, regardless of an individual’s ability to pay.
JACH was nominated to receive a grant in the honor of Director of Business Development, Mary Rossio. According to the nominator, “Mary is the face of JACH in the eight counties served, especially Grundy County where she has lived all of her life. On any given day, Mary may be found educating families and healthcare providers about hospice and palliative care and the importance of advance care planning."
Making a further investment in Grundy County, Mary serves in various roles with three Grundy County organizations: Angels of Hope, We Care of Grundy County, and the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce.
More information on JACH can be found on their website, at www.joliethospice.org. Anyone interested in supporting to JACH can send donations to 250 Water Stone Circle Joliet, IL 60431.
As a part of the Community Foundation’s anniversary year, 20 $1,000 grants will be awarded to non-profits serving Grundy County as nominated by the community. Nominations, such as the grant to the JACH, have been made in honor of an employee or volunteer who has brought great value to a non-profit.
While the CFGC is no longer taking new nominations, there are still two awards coming shortly.
