Mountain Valley Hospice & Moonpie Team for Fundraiser
This summer, Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care is partnering with MoonPie over the Carolinas to celebrate precious memories and support the hospice mission.
During July, Mountain Valley Hospice staff will take orders for boxes of nine double-decker, bakery-fresh MoonPies. The MoonPies can be ordered in three flavors: chocolate, banana, and vanilla, and 40% of the profits from each $10 box will be donated to Mountain Valley Hospice.
"MoonPies and Memories is a fun way for us to raise funds which will help sustain our mission of caring for terminally ill patients and their families," said Melissa Hiatt, Director of Development for Mountain Valley Hospice.
"In addition, we're encouraging folks to come up with new recipes and ideas for enjoying MoonPies, along with any special memories they'd like to share about loved ones and friends."
Orders for MoonPies must be made by Friday, July 26. MoonPies will be baked and distributed to Mountain Valley Hospice offices on August 16.
