Hospice not associated with donor campaign

The Hospice Support Fund of Merrifield, Virginia, is soliciting for donations in the Columbus area. Our Hospice of South Central Indiana is notifying area residents that the local hospice is not affiliated with this organization and does not receive funds from the Virginia group.

The donation letters being distributed in Columbus read “$1US Currency Enclosed. The Hospice Support Fund” and the other is titled “Annual Fund Drive Voluntary Reply Form.”

Solicitations from Our Hospice of South Central Indiana indicate they are from the local organization and contain the logo and local contact information in Columbus. As a not-for-profit hospice, the local organization relies on donors for support to benefit patients and families in a 16-county service area, officials said.
