The Prince George Hospice Palliative Care Society launched its Christmas Give a Gift campaign Monday and it will run through to December 31.
The cost of feeding the guests and families at the Rotary Hospice House is over $28,000 a year ($75/day and $525/week). The society is asking for the community’s support this holiday season, any amount (large or small), so that it can continue bringing friends, families and loved ones together in the comforting embrace of the Hospice kitchen. The goal is to raise enough money to purchase groceries for a full year. Donations can be given in-person at the PGHPCS admin office or online at: https://pghpcs.ca.
The Beaverly Fire and Rescue presented the PG Hospice Palliative Care Society with a donation in memory of the friends and family of the fire department that have been supported by the care at Rotary Hospice House. For more than five years, Beaverly Volunteer Fire Fighters have kicked-off the Give a Gift campaign with their donation. This year they provided a cheque for $2,800.
