Healing All Together — Snowline Hospice’s Place for Grieving Children, Teens and Their Families began as a pilot program in January 2009 as a place where boys and girls (and their families) could work through their feelings after the death of a loved one.

During the past five school years, 98 children ages 5 to 18 have found a place of healing. A place where they — alongside peers who have suffered a similar loss — can convey through art, motion, music or play what words alone cannot express.

The initial sessions of Healing All Together were so successful that Snowline now offers Healing All Together on a regular basis.

Four years ago, Snowline Hospice started the “Link-Up” campaign to help raise funds for the children’s program. This year the community once again has an opportunity to “Link-Up” with young people in grief by helping to provide the financial support needed to serve more boys and girls, and their families this fall.

Beginning Thursday, Aug. 1, Link-Up poles will be located at all six Snowline Thrift Store locations and at the administrative office. These brightly painted poles will be housed at these locations until Sept. 12 to allow community members to attach a paper “link” signifying their encouragement and support of young people entering the Healing All Together program.

Links cost $1 each, and 100 percent of each dollar given goes directly toward funding the Healing Together program.

Community members are welcome to come and purchase links in support of Healing All Together. At the end of the campaign, all of the link chains will be joined to create one long “healing chain” expressing the communities support of this important program.

Link-Up poles and links will be available at: Cameron Park Thrift Store, 3300 Coach Lane, 530-676-8708; Cameron Park N Thrift Store, 2650 Cameron Park Drive, 530-344-4480; Camino Thrift Store, 3550 Carson Road, 530-647-2703; Folsom Thrift Store, 616 E. Birdwell Street, 916-984-5853; Placerville “Just off 50” Thrift Store, 3961 El Dorado Road, 530-622-1710; Placerville Drive Thrift Store, 455 Placerville Drive, 530-621-1802; Diamond Springs Patient Care Office, 6520 Pleasant Valley Road, 530-621-7820.

Healing All Together — Snowline Hospice’s Place for Grieving Children, Teens and Their Families is a service of Snowline Hospice, and is free of charge to residents of El Dorado County, the city of Folsom and other neighboring areas.

For more information about the Link-Up campaign or the Healing All Together program contact Sue Watson, bereavement coordinator, at 530-621-7820.
