Nanny’s Daycare Families Donate to Compass Regional Hospice


Nanny’s Daycare children and their families gathered on Thursday, Dec. 20, to deliver donations, requested through a “Wish List” of items, to Compass Regional Hospice representatives. Daycare provider Nancy Shortall said, rather than a traditional Christmas gift exchange, the daycare families decided to focus their efforts on those in need this year.
