Attending the high school prom is a rite of passage for many young women.  It is “the” social event of their high school in which teens spend a lot of time creating their dream evening. For many it is an expectation that is funded by their parents or family. Unfortunately for some young women, whose families struggle financially on a daily basis, attending the prom is only a dream that will not come true. It costs a small fortune for the dress, shoes, accessories, hair make-up, nails and extras; and, that’s before you step out the front door. So being young with no financial means to afford this once in a lifetime, right-of-passage, leaves an unfortunate lasting imprint on a young women’s self-esteem, confidence and persona.

We at Hospice Care Corporation know that every young woman deserves the opportunity to attend their high school prom looking beautiful on the outside as well as feeling special and empowered on the inside for that one evening.  Over the years, Hospice Care Corporation and its’ supporters has helped thousands of young women go to their prom through The Cinderella Project. It will be making a comeback this year with the gracious support from two local Reedsville, WV business owners; Sherry Newcome, of Sherry’s Boutique and Britney Titus of B&O Junction will sponsor this worthwhile event for area teens. Proceeds from this event will benefit patient care for Hospice Care Corporation.

The Cinderella Project is a community outreach program that provides teen women with an affordable way to attend their high school prom. New and gently-used prom and formal wear, clothing, shoes, accessories that have been donated for this event are available at low, thrift store prices for young women to purchase.

On Saturday, March 14, 2015, The Cinderella Project will be held at B&O Junction, Route 7 in Reedsville, WV. Young women from area high schools can attend to shop for their prom attire at low prices starting at $5.00 for gowns. There will be door prizes and giveaways as well as volunteer personal shoppers to help put together that special looks.

To make this a success, donations of age appropriate new and “gently used” gowns and formal dresses, shoes and accessories of all sizes.  It’s easy to drop off your donations.  Drop off locations include all Hospice Care Corporation offices and Hospice Care Resale Shops along with the B&O Junction and Sherry’s Boutique both located on Rt. 7, Veterans Memorial Highway in Reedsville, WV.

In-kind donations and door prizes that are needed include: photography services, jewelry, gift certificates for hair and nail services, salon treatments limousines, florists, make up samples as well as promotional support to help us create awareness and support.

Financial support and contributions are also needed. Your financial contributions and support can help us to offset the costs for this event as well as ensuring that we have dresses in sizes and colors that we are in need of. We want to make sure that there is a dress for every teen that walks through our doors.

Also, an army of volunteers are needed to help us collect the donated items, spread the word and assist during the event as personal shoppers for the young women.

Call Sherry Newcome at 304-864-1070 or Britney Titus at 304-288-8077 to participate or donate.  To volunteer call Kim Riley with Hospice Care at (304) 864-0884 / 304-376-0545 or toll free at 1-800-350-1161.

Camp NabeHospice Care Corporation is now interviewing campers to attend its 18th Annual Camp Nabe Bereavement Camp to be held at the Camp Roy Weller, Bruceton Mills, WV during the weekend of June 27 - 29, 2014.  Camp Nabe is designed to help children, ages 7 – 17, which have experienced the death of a loved one in the past year.  Campers do not have to have an affiliation with Hospice Care, nor did their loved one have to have been patients of Hospice Care.

Today, Camp Nabe has given hundreds of children from around the state a sense of understanding and comeradery that continues to feed into their lives today.  The Camp is provided free of charge to any qualified child.  Hospice Care, a non-profit hospice, funds the camp through donations, grants, and sponsorships.  Staff for the weekend is a combination of employees and community volunteers who not only help attendees to learn coping skills, but have a lot of fun too.

The camp provides children with tools to deal with death and grief.  In the time after a death, questions, confusion, and worry can take over for not only the adults, but even more so for the children that are often “shielded” from the bereavement process.  This reality, and the fact that timely support can replace these fears with faith and coping skills, is what prompted Hospice Care Corporation to hold the first Camp Nabe Bereavement Camp for children.

If you have questions, would like more information, or would like to make a donation to, or sponsor a child to Camp Nabe call Chris Garbart with Hospice Care Corporation at 1-800-350-1161 or email her at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
