103-Year-Old Veteran Honored by Community Home Health & Hospice
Community Home Health & Hospice honored a 103-year-old veteran who is one of many that receive support thanks to a $15,000 contribution from the Park West Foundation.
Community Home Health & Hospice posted the above photo on Facebook. In it, Linda Beattie, a chaplain and a Park West Gallery VIP client, is honoring Leslie Stiebritz, who served with the 343rd Field Artillery in the U.S. Army Air Corps.
Stiebritz contributed to the liberation of France at the Battle of Normandy. He is among the brave men and women the Community Home Health & Hospice assist as a partner to We Honor Veterans, a national program that serves terminally ill veterans.
According to Julie Rinard, Development Director with Community Home Health & Hospice, Stiebritz is a “beautiful example of the type of patient” the Park West Foundation helps thanks to a $15,000 made in May 2017 at a fundraising event. Generous donors matched the $15,000 donation during the event.
More than 4,300 patients and families in Washington and Oregon are served by Community Home Health & Hospice, which provides them with home health care, hospice, and grief support services.
