Collinsville, Ill. – There is nothing quite like the gift of giving, especially around Christmas. This holiday season, Unity Hospice continued their partnership with Hoyleton Ministries, of Hoyleton, Ill., by again participating in their annual Christmas Angels program, continuing a 15 year tradition.
Christmas Angels is a subset of Hoyleton’s Puentes de Esperanze, a division of Hoyleton Ministries that offers programming to help transform the lives of Latino children and families in Southern Illinois. The program invites area residents and businesses to purchase Christmas presents for children whose families cannot afford to provide the gifts themselves.
Unity Hospice employees were able to select from a list a children to buy for this year. In total, they purchased over 50 gifts for 14 children of all ages.
The act of giving is embedded in Unity Hospice’s mission and values, whether through fundraising incentives or volunteerism. With an understanding of the positive impact that transpires from giving to others, Unity Hospice places a high importance on participating in community initiatives that benefit area seniors and the community at large.
