Suncoast for Kids Foundation, funded by Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union, recently awarded a $30,000 grant to a hospice program for infants, children and adolescents.
The Hope Hospice for the Hope Kids Care program, designed to provide developmentally-appropriate care to infants, children and adolescents with life-limiting conditions. Part of Hope Kids Care is the Rainbow Trails bereavement day camp for children ages six to 16 with a life-limiting or long-term illness and children who have experienced a death of a parent or sibling. Each year, about 80 children attend the camp at no cost to their families, according to Suncoast.
Based in Tampa, Fla., the $5.4 billion CU presented the check to the hospice program Feb. 11.
