The recipient of the first Makovicka Cares! philanthropy program was Grief’s Journey. Featured here is Bre Thompson and Makovicka employee Angie Hanson, who made the nomination.
Grief’s Journey was formerly known as Teddy Bear Hollow, and their vision is that “no one as to grieve alone”.
Their commitment is to strive to grow and understand our community and the various styles that our community grieves and to learn how to best serve our community. We will engage staff, Board members, volunteers, program participants, and the broader community to take active steps toward building a culturally diverse organization representative of the families in our community. We recognize that this work will entail ongoing conversation and action that will include all organization stakeholders, that it won’t be easy, and that mistakes will be made; yet we will continue to evaluate our programs through an equity lens to guide program development and delivery so that no one has to grieve alone.
We are proud to support this worthy cause!
