We took part in this year's #GivingTuesdayCa on Tuesday, November 29.
Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving, dedicated to supporting non-profit organizations.
On Tuesday, November 29th our goal was to raise $12,000 to furnish a Quiet Lounge in the new Hein House residential wing at our Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice. The Quiet Lounge will be a warm and comfortable space which families and friends can use when their loved one is in residence.
We are pleased to share that we surpassed our #GivingTuesdayCa goal and raised $22,825!
These donations will not only allow us to completely furnish a Quiet Lounge but also purchase other comfort items to help patients and families feel at home.
A big thank you to everyone who donated to the campaign and to our local La-Z-Boy team who generously matched donations up to $2,500. With your help Hospice Care Ottawa can continue to provide care and comfort to those who need it most.
