LSI Companies has joined the movement to give “More Hope” to those in need through a $40,000 donation for hospice care. Last fall, Hope launched the campaign to replace funds that were lost due to the pandemic. Through the generous support of LSI Companies as well as gifts from nearly 500 other patrons, the More Hope campaign is nearly halfway to its $500,000 goal.

“It is with great appreciation that LSI Companies can team up with Hope to provide assistance to those who need it most,” said Justin Thibaut, president of LSI Companies. “Those in life’s closing chapter can receive the compassionate support they need.”

The not-for-profit health care organization cares for people throughout five Southwest Florida counties and provides more than $2.5 million in unfunded hospice care each year. In 2020, Hope provided comfort to more than 6,000 hospice patients and their loved ones as they fulfilled life’s journey.

“As one of our committed partners, LSI Companies continues to deeply reflect and embody the values of Hope and the community,” said Samira Beckwith, President and CEO of Hope Healthcare.  “We are grateful for their support as we provide essential services to everyone who needs our care.”
