The Samaritan Hospital Foundation has approved a grant in the amount of $10,000 to Hospice of North Central Ohio (HNCO) to honor the memory of Dr. Katherine Hess who died earlier this year. Dr. Hess practiced medicine in Ashland for 35 years.
The grant will be awarded in $1,000 annual installments for the next ten years to help provide financial support for children to attend HNCO’s Kidscene Bereavement Camp.
Held each summer at Camp Mowana, Kidscene is designed for children who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling or other significant loved one. Campers are encouraged to process emotions related to grief through activities involving swimming, hiking, art, quiet sharing, music, and nature.
