Happy Thanksgiving 2018

thanksgiving-dinner.jpg There are two days each year at the UVA Hospitality House when Mary Jackson and staff extend themselves by providing a special meal for outpatients.  The first opportunity is Thanksgiving. About half the rooms are empty during holidays; however, many patients, especially those who are here for cancer treatment, must remain away from home. It is a real delight for these long distance guests to be treated to a special meal by the staff and friends of Hospitality House, Interfaith Humanitarian  Sanctum (IHS) has participated annually for the last ten years in Thanksgiving and/or the Christmas dinner by providing pre-cooked hams and turkeys. This year the Hospitality House directly received several monetary donations for the main items for the Thanksgiving meal.  IHS has continued to stock Hospitality House kitchen needs monthly upon receipt of a detailed e-mail from Supervisor Mary Jackson.

The next holiday meal at Hospitality House will be on or about Christmas Day,  Friends of the House and IHS are invited to contact Mary Jackson by calling (434) 924-0000 at the Main Hospital and ask for UVA Hospitality House. Mary will be delighted to discuss what items can be provided directly to the House and best date and time for delivery. Hospitality House is located within blocks from the Medical Center. Monetary donations are also accepted via mail at:

P.O. Box 163
Palmyra, VA 22963. 

Checks to the charity should be made payable to IHS.

Please know that periodically a church or business group will volunteer with meal preparation at the House. Simply relate your wish to participate to Mary Jackson.  She will be delighted to hear your desire to assist with serving and preparation of these special meals.

And, as always, please remember that all of us at IHS are non-paid volunteers, and we are all donating what we can to IHS personally. Also remember - for transparency we hold the "Gold Seal of Approval" from the national clearing house. Please do what you can.

Thank you for your support & much love  ...
