Jacob Russell sorts donated items into bins of metal, wire and plastics to be sent to recyclers at the Snowline Hospice processing center last week in Placerville. The 34-year-old nonprofit Snowline provides hospice care and support to many of the region’s residents who are going through end-of-life decisions. If they do not have insurance, Medicare or Medicaid, their treatment is covered by funds raised in Snowline’s six thrift stores, clothing processing centers, fundraisers or United Way.
