Groff Funeral & Cremation Services and Hospice & Community Care were awarded on May 2, 2019, by the Pennsylvania Hospice and Palliative Care Network with its Community Support and Journalism Awards.
Nominated by Hospice & Community Care, Groff Funeral & Cremation Services received the Community Support award for their continued support of our mission for more than 40 years. Robert and Ellen Groff were among a group of community leaders who were part of early conversations about the need for end-of-life care in Lancaster County in the late 1970s. Since then, members of the Groff Funeral & Cremation Services team have been actively volunteering their time to serve on our Board of Directors and various committees.
Hospice & Community Care’s 2018 digital Public Awareness Campaign received the Journalism Award. The digital-only campaign helped to significantly increase awareness about our commitment to the communities we serve and our services, as well as helped to reinforce that people have options in their hospice and palliative care providers.
