Hospice thanks L.P. Quinn
To the editor:
We’d like to express our appreciation to the students, teachers, staff, parents and principal, Dr. Michele Pinard of L.P. Quinn Elementary School, for your ongoing support of hospice care in our North Country communities.
For many years, the school district and community of Tupper Lake has supported High Peaks Hospice during the organization’s annual Radio Day fundraising event. This year, Radio Day was renamed Helping Hands for High Peaks Hospice and was conducted exclusively at L.P. Quinn with live-streaming on Facebook. The children’s fundraising included collecting pennies and loose change, selling popcorn and freeze pops, holding a “luau party” and organizing a wide variety of raffles. They learned about compassionate and end-of-life care, and donated close to $9,000 to our organization from their efforts! These young community members most certainly have made a difference, and will undoubtedly continue to positively influence the lives of others. We are grateful for the generosity of the community of Tupper Lake and incredibly proud of the students of L.P. Quinn.
Susan Rdzanek, development coordinator, and and the staff at High Peaks Hospice
