Community Hospice & Palliative Care Foundation Receives Generous Contribution
May 4, 2023 (Jacksonville, Fla.) – On April 26, 2023, the Community Hospice & Palliative Care Foundation received a generous contribution of $60,000 from the Rotary Club of Riverside Jacksonville. The check presentation was held at the Florida Yacht Club to donate funds raised at the ninth annual Riverside Craft Beer Festival.
