Cornerstone VNA Receives Donation from Index Packaging, Inc.

Rochester, NH:  Cornerstone VNA, a nonprofit home health and hospice care provider, received a generous donation of $1,900 from the employees and leadership team at Index Packaging, Inc. in Milton, NH. Each year Index Packaging, Inc. engages their employees in supporting a local nonprofit organization, and this year they were pleased to select Cornerstone VNA.


The donation from Index Packaging, Inc. will be used to support a special program at Cornerstone VNA called Pet Peace of Mind. Pet Peace of Mind is a national program that partners with nonprofit Hospice organizations in order to meet the needs of patients with pets. The purpose is to enrich the quality of life for seriously ill patients and the pets they love by assisting with pet care issues. Initial grant money from Pet Peace of Mind, and other designated donations received by Cornerstone VNA, help cover the cost of veterinary care, grooming and other pet care needs. The goal of Pet Peace of Mind is to enable hospice patients to keep their pets at home throughout their end of life journey.


Tamara Crooks-Faulkingham, RN, Cornerstone VNA Hospice Director says, “We know that pets are important family members to the patients we serve, and we are so pleased to partner with Pet Peace of Mind so that we can have additional support in place for patients whose health is declining.” Crooks-Faulkingham adds, “These generous funds from Index Packaging, Inc. will be put to good use.” Kimberly Cameron, Estimator/Customer Service at Index Packaging, Inc. remarks, “We are very fortunate to have the staff and funds to be able to do this for an organization each year. It is absolutely our pleasure.”
