Hospice House welcomes new full-time resident

Published 10:15pm Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Wells Fargo in Landrum has provided for a new resident at the Hospice House.

Mack is a big pony who was used by Wells Fargo during a promotional display in December.

“We decided to bring Mack to the Hospice House for their playroom for families of guests,” said Angela Thompson, Wells Fargo’s Landrum store manager.

Mack will reside in the children’s playroom, located at the end of the patient wing.

“He fits right in to this community and is a welcome addition to our House,” said Gwen Painter, Hospice House director. “With all the families who visit the Hospice House, there is no doubt he will be well loved.”
