Programs & Services
Huron Hospice is committed to providing our programs and services free of charge in our community. When families are faced with a loved one who has been diagnosed with a life threatening illness, additional financial challenges often occur. Donations to Hospice are essential to the continuation of the many services we provide at no cost to the consumer.
We must raise more than 40% of our budget to ensure our organization continues to serve and thrive for the individuals who are in need of quality end of life care.
Our major fundraising event for the year, Hike for Hospice is a national fundraising event which helps advance the hospice palliative care initiatives in OUR community. It is held on the fist Sunday in May, every year. All funds raised remain in our community to offer on going training, enhanced programs and increased services, to ensure that the need in our communities continues to be met. This is a five – km Hike for Hospice with an emphasis on participation rather than speed or even distance covered. Walkers often hike in Memory or in Honour of a Loved One.
Handbags for Hospice is A Charity Purse Auction featuring fashion & designer handbags and women accessories. An evening of purses, fun, laughs, friend-raising and fundraising, Handbags for Hospice is a gala dessert and cocktail social event where women can bid on designer purses, and other fashion accessories raising funds for Huron Hospice. Handbags for Hospice is a new event for Huron County, and is an opportunity for women to escape their busy lives and network while meeting other community-minded women. It is also an opportunity for people to learn more about the free services that Huron Hospice provides to our County. Expect purses by designer brands in all shapes, sizes and colors. A silent and live auction. Decadent desserts, music and social.
Zehrs Hotdog Days are held at Zehrs in Goderich during the summer months. Delicious hot dogs with all the trimmings, fried onions and a drink are served. Learn all about the good work that is being done in your community and meet the volunteers of Huron Hospice! Donations are gratefully received.
