For over 40 years The Hospice of Windsor and Essex County has been offering compassionate end-of-life care to our community. Throughout that time, the Hospice Dove has been a symbol of our Hospice, and the care provided.

The Hospice has announced the return of the Hospice Dove Pin Campaign. These pins are a one-inch dove-shaped lapel pin; an iconic and heartfelt representation of not only Hospice, but the thousands of patients and families Hospice has had the privilege of caring for, right here, in Windsor and Essex County.

Thanks to the help and generosity of Ground Effects LTD and Mega Mold International, these Dove Pins were generously designed and manufactured locally. Each pin will once again be offered by donation, and all funds raised will directly support care for local Hospice patients and families.

Hospice Volunteers will be offering pins at more than 30 locations across Windsor-Essex through the April 25/26/27/28 weekend, including various Home Hardware, Metro, Rexall, Shoppers Drug Mart, Sobeys and Zehrs locations, as well as at Colasanti’s Tropical Gardens, Anna’s Garden, and Cindy’s Home and Garden.

“We are so happy to see this project continue to grow,” says Jim Scott, President of Ground Effects Ltd. “Hospice is very close to our hearts, and both the Ground Effects and the Mega Mold teams are proud to help.”

“By making a donation and wearing a Dove Pin, you are helping provide quality care and memorable moments to Hospice patients and their loved ones,” says Katharen Bortolin, Incoming Hospice Executive Director. “We would love for you to stop by one of our locations, say hello to our amazing volunteers, make a donation, and proudly wear your locally made Hospice Dove Pin.”

A list of locations where pins will be made available, as well as additional information about the campaign online.
