The Society of United Professionals, Bruce Power Local Community Foundations Fund, has donated an additional $10,000 to Huron Shores Hospice, supporting this year’s fundraising efforts to sustain quality end-of-life care in south Bruce County.
Eric Tiisler from the Society, said that they are happy to support the fundraising efforts of Huron Shores Hospice, as they continue to offer quality end-of-life care to residents of south Bruce County. “Last year we contributed $10,000 to the Phase II fundraising efforts to bring a second bed and we are pleased that these efforts are moving closer to completion. We know how important these annual fundraisers are to the organization and are very happy to do our part to support our community hospice.”
Huron Shores Hospice is a charitable not-for-profit, volunteer-led, with 100% of the operating costs being community-funded for the one-bed residential hospice, providing quality end-of-life care, at no cost, to residents of Kincardine, Huron-Kinloss, Saugeen Shores and surrounding areas.
“We are very pleased to have the Society of United Professionals, Bruce Power Local Community Foundations Fund, continued support of our community hospice,” said Carol Rencheck, Co-Chair of Huron Shores Hospice Board of Directors. “Their $5,000 donation to ‘Hike for Hospice’ and $5,000 donation to ‘Handbags for Hospice’ will help ensure successful events and shows their commitment to helping us provide this valuable service to our community. We couldn’t do what we do without the support of organizations like The Society of United Professionals and we are very appreciative to have them as large supporters of our community hospice.”
A cheque presentation will take place on May 11, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. at the Huron Shores Hospice 3rd Annual Hike for Hospice at the Davidson Centre in Kinardine.
