SCHF's mission is to deliver a breadth of resources to caregivers, families, and patients confronting the final stages of life.
Saachi first crossed paths with the Southern California Hospice Foundation at the 2020 Women of Influence event. Michelle Wulfestieg, SCHF’s Executive Director and two-time stroke survivor, was the keynote speaker who inspired the audience to take action to help others. When the community was hit by COVID-19, Saachi provided 1,000+ fabric masks for hospice nurses, patients, and families. In May, she and her family expanded their efforts to create a donation drive for SCHF, and with the community's support, they were able to contribute 1,200+ units of food.
In 2020, the effects of COVID-19 are widespread. With California's “Stay At Home” order, forty million residents are required to stay at home indefinitely as the state grapples with a growing novel coronavirus pandemic,. The hospice patients need our help now more than ever. Through partnerships with local food banks, churches, and restaurants throughout Southern California, SCHF has been able to provide 1,248 boxes of food and essential paper products to home-bound patients and their families who are unable to leave their home to shop for groceries.
With your help, we can continue to provide hospice patients with essential supplies during this difficult time. All proceeds are allocated to directly fulfilling patient needs.
