Great River Hospice is holding a fund-raiser to support its hospice house, which is under construction on Great River Medical Center's campus. Proceeds from the sale of personalized brick pavers will support the construction and ongoing operations of the facility for people at the end of their lives and their families.

Bricks are $125 each. The donation is tax-deductible. Bricks can be purchased in memory or in honor of someone. All bricks will be placed in public gardens next to the house and near the walking path around the hospital's lake.

Personalization may include up to three lines with 14 characters (including spaces) per line.

For more information, please call Great River Home Hospice at (319) 768-3392 (West Burlington office), (319) 986-6325 (Mt. Pleasant office) or toll- free at (877) 404-4766.
