Josie Harper Hospice House November 9, 2021


The pandemic continued on into 2021 and the needs at Josie Harper Hospice House remained about the same for the year as last. In early September Sandy Viner (chair) began shopping for the needs this fall. The needs continued to be body lotions, shampoos, body wash, baby powder, shaving cream, combs and tooth brushes. Gary the executive director and Lisa the development director asked if it would be possible to add non-ticking wall clocks for the rooms to the list and Sandy told them to let her know how many they needed.

On this bright sunny afternoon on November 9, Sandy and Gordy were ready to load the SUV and deliver the items that Sandy had purchased this fall. Upon arrival we were met by Lisa and nurse Heidi. While unloading the SUV, Gary came out and visited with us before they took all of the items inside. Gary and Lisa thanked us and the Heartland Council Pioneers for all of the items we delivered.

Cozy Wraps Fall Delivers November 1, 2021


At the end of October it was time for the Cozy Wrap group to deliver the items that they had assembled this fall. Bob and Carolyn’s first stop was at the Open Door Mission. They had lap robs, stocking hats and scarves. From their they headed over to Council Bluffs, IA with a large number of lap robs. The administrators thanked them both for the items that will be handy this winter. The last photo is of the the items made by the satellite Cozy Wrap group of Granby. Everything assembled on the table was made for the Operation Christmas Child for the Christmas program at Samaritans Purse. They were very thankful to the Cozy Wrap group for their help this year.
