The Blessing Bag Project

God’s goodness.

When a loved one is admitted into care at the Hinkle Hospice House, remembering to bring toiletries, journaling tools, even a magazine or puzzle books etc….may be the farthest from one’s mind. So why not make this one less thing that a patient or loved one has to remember by providing them a “gift of comfort and hope” in a bag, a Blessing Bag?
