"Winston-Salem, NC—Beginning Thursday, January 15, Hospice & Palliative CareCenter will host a monthly Veterans’ Coffee from 8:30-10:30am at Outback Steakhouse in Winston-Salem.  The Coffee is free and open to veterans of all ages and is an opportunity for our local veterans to meet, share stories, and enjoy informal presentations by community organizations. Veterans’ Coffee gatherings will continue on the third Thursday of each month Outback Steakhouse located at 505 Highland Oaks Drive in Winston-Salem. Complimentary coffee and pastries are being provided by Sheetz. For more information call 336.768.3972.

Around the country and here in North Carolina similar events are being held to provide veterans a place to gather and for local health and human service organizations to show their support by offering a casual environment where veterans can meet and learn about services available to them. Don Timmons, Event Coordinator and Vietnam veteran, explained Hospice & Palliative CareCenter’s involvement.  “We are inviting local veterans to enjoy these Coffee events as our way of saying thanks for your service, to provide an opportunity for comradery and also offer access to local resources and that our veterans may not be aware of.”
Through We Honor Veterans, a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) and Veterans Administration (VA), Hospice & Palliative CareCenter is better serving our veterans and their families as they face end of life. The Veterans’ Coffee event is one more way Hospice can salute those who serve in our nation’s armed forces.

Hospice & Palliative CareCenter is North Carolina’s oldest and most comprehensive hospice organization—celebrating 35 years and offering services at all stages of life to bring hope, expert care and quality of life to anyone facing the challenges of a life-limiting illness."
