Those caring for patients in hospitality houses are receiving a big thank you this week.
Today Family House volunteers spent their morning cooking up 1,000 cookies for national hospitality house week.
They then passed out the cookies to the staff and volunteers at local hospitals.
They wanted to thank them for taking care of Family House’s guests.
"People here understand what the other families are going through. That's the true built-in benefit to a hospitality house. That network of support, that comfort, that is provided to the families,” said Laura Clark, Executive Director.
Guests stay in hospitality houses when they are receiving services for serious injuries or illness from local hospitals.
