For many who have had to work with hospice at some point in their lives, they know that “every day is a gift.” And the Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office will honor that commitment this week as it promotes the “Hospice: Every Day is a Gift” specialty license plate through March.
The plate benefits the Florida Hospice and Palliative Care Association, and is sponsored locally by Gulfside Hospice & Pasco Palliative Care, according to a release. Gulfside provides end-of-life care for those who have a prognosis of six months or less, as well as provide assistance for pain and symptom control with chronic illness at any age.
Purchasing the specialty tag requires a fee above the normal renewal cost for a license plate, an annual donation of $25. The tax collector’s office also is accepting cash donations beyond that to support the Florida Hospice and Palliative Care Association.
“By purchasing the hospice specialty license plate, you help create awareness and access to care and service when our Pasco County residents need it most,” said Linda Ward, president of Gulfside Hospice, in a release.
“Hospice care is a vital and extremely important service that has touched the lives of nearly every individual or family in some way,” said tax collector Mike Fasano, in a release.
Specialty tags are available to purchase at the four tax collector office locations in Pasco County: Land O’ Lakes, Dade City, New Port Richey and Gulf Harbors.
