Sarah Bush Lincoln thanks Cross County Mall for its $298.44 donation to the SBL Hospice House campaign: The most important home you’ll ever build.
Community members often toss coins into the fountain located in the center of the mall, and each quarter, mall leadership collects the coins and donates the money to a not-for-profit organization.
“The Hospice House will be such a wonderful addition to Coles and surrounding counties, and we thought it was the perfect place to direct this donation,” Stephanie Reinbolt, Cross County Mall event coordinator said. “We’re pleased to have a part in helping our community in this special way.”
SBL Health Foundation Director Amy Card said, “We’re grateful that Cross County Mall chose to donate the change collection to our hospice house campaign. We’re thankful for every penny, every dollar given to help those spending their final days in our Hospice House.”
Construction of the Hospice House is nearing completion and will open later this year. For more information on donating to the Hospice House campaign, contact Card at 217-258-2511.
