Sweeten the Day for Mom and Give Hope to Others


Chocolates ordered online to benefit Hope Hospice

Hope Hospice and Norman Love Confections have created a special offering for Mother’s Day as sweet as Mom herself. This year, Mother’s Day orders placed through Norman Love’s website are even sweeter: For every order placed at www.Hope.NormanLove.com, Love will contribute five percent of the sale to Hope HealthCare Services.

These donations will help Hope continue its mission of providing high-quality, innovative services to families throughout Southwest Florida, including hospice care, according to Samira K. Beckwith, Hope’s president and CEO. “Mothers provide steadfast comfort and care for their families even through difficult times, just like Hope does for those in our care,” Beckwith said. “It’s a special privilege to have this generous support from Norman during the Mother’s Day holiday. We truly appreciate the partnership.”

Love, the Fort Myers-based award-winning chocolatier whose creations are shipped nationwide, established the partnership with Hope in honor of his mother, who was cared for by hospice prior to her death in 1989. Hope Hospice plays such an important role in families throughout the community, and it’s a cause that’s important to me personally,” Love said. “We’re pleased to partner with Hope and to give our customers the opportunity to support the organization.”
