NORWICH – Hospice and Palliative Care of Chenango County provides end-of-life services for terminally ill patients with less than six months to live. They offer a range of services, including support, pain management, at-home visits, and education. The organization also offers a variety of bereavement services for families after a loss. The Hospice organization does a lot for the community, and now one local store is trying to do something to help them.
For one week, beginning Oct. 16, First Edition Book Store will hold an event to benefit Hospice. Lisa Mody, owner of First Edition, has several titles in stock, requested by Hospice. If a customer purchases one of these books to donate to Hospice, they will receive 20 percent off the price of the book, and 20 percent off their own purchase as well. “Helping Hospice get more books is a great excuse to help people get a little extra discount on their purchase,” Mody said. Anyone who comes in before Oct. 16 to purchase a book for Hospice, will still get 20 percent off the Hospice title. The rest of the purchase will be at the regular rates.
