To the Editor:
It has come to our attention that residents in our area have been contacted by Cancer Support Services from Dearborn, MI, regarding donations.  The impression given is that funds donated to them will be given to our local hospice to care for patients in your area. We have no affiliation with this group, nor have we ever been contacted to negotiate such an agreement.

Please be aware of this before giving to the organization, thinking your finds will go to assist patients within the care of Community Hospice of Tuscarawas, Stark and Carroll Counties. I would also encourage you to review this organization’s profile on Charity Navigator.org to see how it compares to the impact local charities in the community are making with your donated dollars.

Bob Phipps
Director of Development
Community Hospice of Tuscarawas, Stark
