Julia Linder Receives Statewide Hospice Award

Julia Linder of Dover has been selected as the 2014 Midwest Care Alliance “Volunteers are the Heart of Hospice” award. The award is presented annually to one hospice volunteer in the state of Ohio.

Julia’s tenure with Community Hospice started in 1986 when she was one of the early volunteers working to bring hospice care to the Tuscarawas Valley. Under her leadership, the fundraising efforts of Community Hospice have grown from a few close friends doing a couple of events to over 40 volunteers in a four-county area conducting fifteen events each year. Her leadership has created a fundraising culture that raises over $250,000 annually for patient care.

The award was presented to Julia on November 6th at the annual conference of The Midwest Care Alliance in Columbus, Ohio. Congratulations, Julia!
