Paddle Raise

The paddle raise is an opportunity to connect with and support specific ways we provide care for the community.  It is our promise to support each patient with the highest quality of care, regardless of financial circumstances.  The paddle raises support for care such as grief counseling programs including children’s grief camp and after-school programs, pre-hospice palliative care, and homemade soup and treats for Schneidmiller house visitors. Our care extends to our team of volunteers, who uplift patients and their caregivers.

Raise your bidder number to contribute your determined amount supporting the Hospice of North Idaho mission.

You cannot change anything in your life with intention alone,
which can become a watered-down, occasional hope that
you’ll get to tomorrow. Intention without action is useless.
