Serenity House fundraising
Summer Shortfall Matching Challenge Grant: Lowe’s is partnering with Carolina Comfort Coalition’s Serenity House on a challenge grant.
Serenity House will extend the campaign through September, and executive director Cheryl Pletcher is asking donors to match the grant 100 percent, which will raise an additional $20,000 toward its operating budget of more than $350,000 annually.
Residents referred to Serenity House by Hospice are generally without a family member or friend to oversee their medications, cook meals or provide care at home. When they arrive at Serenity House they find compassion and relief.
