Students assist High Peaks Hospice

PORT HENRY - Jarrah Jerdo from Moriah High School and Evan Glading, Jr. from Ticonderoga High School sponsored a benefit lawn sale in Port Henry over the Memorial Day weekend as a fundraiser for High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care.

High Peaks Hospice is a not-for-profit healthcare organization dedicated to providing compassionate in-home end of life care to patients and their families. Their local office is based in Port Henry and serves all of Essex County.

Hospice Development Coordinator Cheryl Olson accepted the donation, which totaled over $700.

"I can't thank these young people enough for the great job they did," Olson said. "A simple idea and a lot of energy produced amazing results. A big thank you also goes out to all those in the community who generously donated items to be sold."

High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care relies on support from the community to ensure that no one is ever denied hospice service because of inability to pay.
