Huron Shores Hospice is looking for support, shifting focus from shopping to generosity. November 29 is Giving Tuesday, and the hospice hopes people will keep them in mind when choosing a charity to support.
Donations will help the hospice at the Tiverton manor continue to provide free quality compassionate end-of-life care to families needing support for their loved ones in the community.
Bruce Power has offered to match the first $5,000 raised, dollar for dollar.
Giving Tuesday is a global day of generosity that started as the antidote to the commercialism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
“Giving Tuesday is about individuals and organizations giving back in any way they can,” said Mike Rencheck, President and CEO of Bruce Power. “Bruce Power is dedicated to being an active partner in our community and we are proud to support organizations such as Huron Shores Hospice, who provide support to community members in difficult times.”
“As we continue to create a world where end-of-life receives the same beauty, care, and respect as the beginning, by making moments matter, we are so grateful for the support of Bruce Power in providing this matching sponsorship,” said Cathy Herbert, Executive Director of Huron Shores Hospice.
“Our year-end campaign kicked off on Giving Tuesday will help sustain our community-owned hospice so families can continue to count on us to deliver quality compassionate care and support well into the future. We have a wonderful community of support and are very happy for Bruce Power’s offer to double the impact of our loyal donor’s donations.”
