Sister's Project Gift Benefits Masonicare's Hospice Program

For close to a decade, The Sisters’ Project has graciously supported Masonicare’s Inpatient Hospice Services on the Acute Care Unit, providing hospice patients and their loved ones with increased comfort at a time when they need it most. The Sisters’ Project is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization founded by a group of women in Wallingford committed to raising funds in support of cancer patients and their families. Since 2011, Masonicare has been a major beneficiary of the group’s fundraising efforts.

In the fall of 2019, The Sisters’ Project generously funded the refurbishment of the family lounge on 3 Central at Masonicare Health Center, including updated furniture, window treatments, lighting, and artwork. In a ribbon cutting ceremony on February 4, 2020, the lounge was unveiled and has already been able to provide a private, serene space for residents and their families. The Sisters were also honored for their long-standing support of Masonicare’s Inpatient Hospice Services with the dedication of 3 Central as “The Sisters’ Project Way.”

“The Sisters’ Project is so pleased to have been able to help outfit the new family lounge at Masonicare Health Center. The creation of this peaceful haven allows us to continue our mission to bring tranquility to cancer patients and their families in our community,” said The Sisters’ Project President, Judi Gallagher. “We are particularly proud of the naming of this area as ‘The Sisters’ Project Way’ and are honored to partner with Masonicare as they respond to patient needs and enhance their palliative and long-term care.”

In addition to furnishing the family lounge, this year’s donation will supply embroidered blankets to comfort and warm patients and their families and provide continued coffee and snack service for both the Acute Care Medical Unit and 3 Central.

“We are so grateful for the continued generosity of The Sisters’ Project,” said Jennifer King, Executive Director of The Masonic Charity Foundation. “Their excellent support over the years has truly helped to create a peaceful and homelike environment for Masonicare’s hospice patients and their families cared for in our Wallingford facility.”
