Caring at Christmas

Caring at Christmas was started by four local women (Sara Barhorst, Vickie Edwards, Terri Stark, and Holly Urbanc) in 1994. The project invites residents of Shelby County to make a donation to Wilson Health Hospice Care in lieu of sending local Christmas cards. An ad then appears in the Sidney Daily News shortly before Christmas listing those who donated.

Wilson Health Hospice Care uses the funds to provide services for their hospice patients such as respite time for care givers, additional visits from home health care aids, and other such items for which funding would not be available, allowing them to give extra, loving care to our Shelby County family and friends.

To date Caring at Christmas has donated over $420,000 to Wilson Health Hospice Care through the project.

The project runs from November 1 through early December each year and donations can be made by making a check payable to Wilson Health Hospice Care, include your name as you would like it listed in the newspaper, and mailing to:
