Tampa Office Spreads Holiday Cheer at Local Hospice, LifePath

Written by Warren Averett on January 18, 2021

To help make the holiday season a little brighter last month, Warren Averett’s Tampa office supported LifePath, a local hospice.

LifePath Hospice offers individual and family support, adult grief support groups, children’s grief services and other services that assure the long-term emotional, mental and physical well-being of survivors. Patients oftentimes do not have family members for support, have low income, or are lonely.

This can make the holiday season even more daunting, especially in a year that has been impacted by COVID-19. Wanting to combat this loneliness and bring some holiday cheer, Tampa team members donated gifts from a wish list or gave monetary donations for restaurant gift cards so family members could eat out while their loved ones were in hospice.

Whitney McFee, an Account Manager on the Tampa office’s Staffing & Recruiting team said, “I suggested this organization for our Q4 Initiative because I have benefited from the hospice’s bereavement support. I can truly say that I would not be the person that I am today without them.” Hospices have been a support system for Whitney and even now, she is involved through the young adult support group that meets twice a month. Since LifePath Hospice is such a big presence in her life, Whitney wanted to support them as well.

Through their donations, the Tampa team did just that by fulfilling 45 wishes of patients and their loved ones. Torie Dangler, the Volunteer Coordinator at LifePath Hospice, was thrilled by the contributions for the holiday season. Dangler said, “We were able to get all of the gifts delivered to the patients before Christmas. All the patients loved their gifts, were so thankful, and some patients even had birthdays around the holidays. Thank you again for helping spread joy to patients and families this season.”

Thanks to all our accountants, advisors and professionals who donated and helped make this holiday season brighter.
