Florence County residents may have recently received a document in the mail from The Hospice Support Fund of Merrifield, Virginia. This organization is an independent national for-profit hospice organization. It is not affiliated with the efforts to set up a hospice in Florence County. The information is misleading since the letter states that their 2017 Annual Fund Drive is for the Florence Area Appeal. Funds for the local Florence County Hospice are not being accepted at this time.
