How You Can Help

Family Sponsorship - A gift of $200 of more helps underwrite a family's average stay at The Guest House at McLeod.  The donor's name will be placed on a special naming plaque located in the hallway of the Guest House.

Tree of Life - A gift of $500 or more is recognized on the "Tree of Life" in the foyer of the Guest House.  

These gifts allow us to continue providing a home away from home for families from outside the Florence area.


In the summer of 2010, my husband had open heart surgery.  In the days following his surgery, I was sleeping on the floor of the waiting room when a patient representative offered me use of the Guest House at McLeod.  The Guest House became a home away from home for me.

My husband recovered, and we were able to return home, but he died a few months later in November.  I now try to honor him by helping other families in need of the services at the Guest House.
