In September 2007, Cancer Support for Blackford County partnered with the Foundation in establishing a fund to provide HOPE (Handing Out Positive Encouragement) to those Blackford County residents who have just been diagnosed with cancer.
Newly diagnosed cancer patients receive a “Hope Tote” filled with comfort gifts, local gift cards, and a gas card.
Each year the organization provides encouragement to approximately forty patients through giving emotional, spiritual, and financial support to those patients and their families.
Contact either Diana Mitchell at 348-2104 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Connie Mann at 728-2514 for further information on the program and on eligibility.
This program is completely funded through donations that are spent only for the Hope Tote supplies and other program support. All donor gifts are used exclusively in Blackford County, and no contributions are used for administrative purposes.
If you wish to donate to this fund, you may send your gift to
Blackford County Community Foundation

P.O. Box 327
Hartford City, IN 47348
Or you may contribute online, designating “Cancer Support for Blackford County” in the Purpose of Donation box.
