The Society of United Professionals provided a $10,000 matching sponsorship of Huron Shores Hospice's End- of-Year Campaign.
“The Society of United Professionals is pleased to support this vital service for our community. People being able to receive free quality end-of-life care, close to home, supported by their loved ones provides peace and dignity to the dying. We are proud to support our community hospice as a demonstration of our vision that unions build stronger communities,” said Mike Gade, Vice President of the Society of United Professionals.
“Donations to our End-of-Year Campaign will sustain us through to our Hike for Hospice event on May 7th and help get our in-person community programs up and running as the world opens up,” said Carol Rencheck, Co-Chair of Huron Shores Hospice. “We are so appreciative of The Society of United Professional’s offer to match donations, providing double the impact for each donation.”
“The Society was able to do a full match of $10,000 thanks to the amazing generosity of the community making donations. The total amount raised from Giving Tuesday on November 30th to December 31st was $59,432 with cheques continuing to be received in the new year,” added Co-chair Cheryl Cottrill.
“Our goal was to raise $50,000 between Giving Tuesday and our End-of-Year campaign and once again this community stepped up to support us in a big way, helping us exceed our goal.” said Cottrill.
