Throughout the month of November, Super One Foods customers purchased 9,706 $1 ornaments to benefit Solvay Hospice House. Over the past six years, this fundraising campaign, hosted by Super One Foods and the Miller-Dwan Foundation, has raised more than $38,000 for the residential hospice house in Duluth Heights.
"It is wonderful that so many people chose to support Solvay Hospice House while they were shopping at local Super One stores," said Traci Marciniak, president of the Miller-Dwan Foundation. "We are grateful for their generosity and that of Miner's Inc., Super One Foods and all of the cashiers who worked hard letting customers know about Solvay and what a difference it makes for hospice patients and their families."
The money will be used to provide high-quality care for patients and families at Solvay Hospice House. Since opening in 2007, Solvay Hospice House and its compassionate caregivers have provided dignity, comfort and peace to hundreds of local patients and their families.
Solvay Hospice House gives hospice patients and families a place that provides 24 hour, high-quality and compassionate end-of-life care. It offers a meditation area, a music room, a sun room, and an outdoor screened gazebo. Because patient comfort is paramount, the home also includes a spa room for gentle baths, aromatherapy and massage, as well as spacious private bedrooms with private patios overlooking beautifully landscaped grounds.
Miller-Dwan Foundation owns Solvay Hospice House and is committed to continued stewardship for both the home and the care of patients. The care within Solvay is provided by Essentia Health St. Mary's Hospice. To learn more, visit www.solvayhospicehouse.org.
