There’s Still Time to Give

It was a wonderful holiday season at Alive with holiday meals, lighting of the residences, and gifts for patients and families. Our donors and volunteers help make this time special for families who may be spending their last holiday together. Have you had a chance to give yet in support of our patients and families? If you haven’t, there’s still time to donate.

Happy Holidays!
Kimberly Goessele, Alive President and CEO
