Become a Hope Lodge Day-of-the-Month Club Donor!
The Hope Lodge Day-of-the-Month Club offers donors the opportunity to honor a special someone or a special day, such as a birthday, anniversary, or perhaps the day you learned you were cancer free.  Reserve that special day, or a weekend, or month, as your “Official” Day-of-the-Month at the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge Worcester, and it will become a special day in the life of the guests and caregivers by covering Lodge operating costs, programs, and services for that period of time.  

As a thank you for your contribution, your name, or the name of your special someone, will be posted at the Lodge, and along with receiving individual acknowledgment, you will be invited to the annual Day-of-the-Month Club reception. 

To learn more about the Day-of-the-Month Club, or to make a gift to the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge Worcester, please contact Mary Davis at 508-270-4690 or at
