More than 700 volunteers from the Greensboro Jewish community celebrated Mitzvah Day, by coming together to serve others in need of support. Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro (HPCG) was one of 40 organizations that benefitted from a “mitzvah” … an act of kindness. This year more than 40 adults, children and teens arrived at Kids Path for a tour and to complete various service projects.

Special thanks to the volunteers who lifted the spirits of HPCG patients, families and staff members by creating courage bracelets for children and teens grieving the loss of a loved one; worry jars for a therapeutic grief support group activity; and homemade treats for family members visiting their loved ones at Beacon Place. HPCG has been chosen as a Mitzvah Day project site for the past 18 years.

HPCG, a nonprofit organization serving Guilford County and surrounding areas for more than 30 years, is situated on an eight-acre campus at 2500 Summit Avenue. HPCG provides physical, emotional and spiritual support for children and adults faced with a life-limiting illness, as well as their caregivers and families.
