HOSPICE LAUNCHES “SENDING LOVE” CAMPAIGN FEBRUARY 2021
The Hospice of Windsor & Essex County has officially launched a new campaign with the goal of Sending Love across our community! At a time when we have to stay apart, Hospice wants to help Send Love by way of a personalized message and magnet sent in the mail – like a COVID-safe candygram!
This simple concept mirrors an age-old tradition of sending a small item and a personal note to a friend, colleague, or classmate. With many members of our community working from home, taking part in virtual learning, or isolated from loved ones, this is a wonderful way to share a simple message: even from a distance, someone is thinking of you.
For those who are interested in Sending Love, the process is easy: select someone you have been thinking about or haven’t been able to see lately. Next, visit online or call 519-974-7100 to make your $20 donation (this helps cover the cost of the item and shipping, plus supports Hospice along the way). Enter your recipient’s name, address and your special message, and let Hospice do the rest, mailing the package on your behalf.
The Hospice Sending Love Campaign runs until February 28 2021, or until supplies last. Donations receive a tax receipt. Delivery available in Canada only.
Founded to address compassionate end-of-life care, The Hospice of Windsor and Essex County Inc. has been an integral part of the Windsor-Essex region since 1979. The Hospice provides care at no cost in our two Hospice Residential Homes (Windsor and Erie Shores/Leamington), through the Community Palliative Medicine Program and through our Wellness Programs and Services. With only partial government funding, it has been through the generous support of our community that Hospice has become the first palliative hospice village in North America. Over time, The Hospice has adapted to meet the needs of the community, and continues to address the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their families, now and into the future.
