Hospice plans benefit

PORT HENRY - Donations are being sought for the second annual High Peaks Hospice Lawn Sale in Port Henry.

The sale will be held Saturday, May 29, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on South Main Street, across from the Port Henry train station.

The event is being organized by Moriah Central School National Honor Society student Jarrah Jerdo 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.

"Fundraising events such as this allow their services to be made available to anyone with a prognosis of six months or less, regardless of ability to pay," Cheryl Olson of hospice said.

"Jarrah is hoping that the community will come out to generously support this worthwhile cause and she asks that when residents do their spring cleaning they don't toss out unwanted items," Olson said. "Instead she encourages people to let their trash become someone else's treasure by contributing it to the success of this sale."

People can call 546-7093 to arrange for drop off or pick up of items.

High Peaks Hospice serves patients and their families in all of Essex and Warren counties and portions of Franklin, St. Lawrence and Hamilton Counties. Services are available to anyone with a prognosis of six months or less, regardless of ability to pay.
