National Waffle Day celebrated with care

JACKSONVILLE, Fla — Community Hospice and Palliative Care is celebrating National Waffle Day in a special way.

Comfort Inn & Suites Jacksonville Orange Park delivered a celebration package featuring waffle iron, batter, syrup, and accessories to honor compassionate end-of-life care in the Greater Jacksonville Metropolitan Area since 1979.


Bobbie Hoover, Director of Home Care & Long Term Care was there to receive the gift.

Each year Choice Hotels, which was the first hotel chain to offer waffles on its menu, celebrates Waffle Day by honoring hometown heroes.
