Huron Shores Hospice joins Giving Tuesday; Bruce Power offers matching funds

November 23, 2022

Huron Shores Hospice is participating in Giving Tuesday, Nov. 29, to continue to provide free quality compassionate end-of-life care to families needing support for their loved ones in our community.

Bruce Power has very generously offered to match the first $5,000 raised, $1 for $1.

Giving Tuesday is a global day of generosity to celebrate humanity. The day was started as the antidote to the commercialism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

“Giving Tuesday is about individuals and organizations giving back in any way they can,” says Mike Rencheck, president and chief executive officer of Bruce Power. “Bruce Power is dedicated to being an active partner in our community and we are proud to support organizations such as Huron Shores Hospice, which provide support to community members in difficult times.”

“As we continue to create a world where end-of-life receives the same beauty, care and respect as the beginning, by making moments matter, we are so grateful for the support of Bruce Power in providing this matching sponsorship,” said Cathy Herbert, executive director of Huron Shores Hospice.

“Our year-end campaign, which kicks off on Giving Tuesday, will help sustain our community-owned hospice so families can continue to count on us to deliver quality compassionate care and support well into the future. We have a wonderful community of support and are very happy for Bruce Power’s offer to double the impact of our loyal donors’ donations.”

Huron Shores Hospice is a charitable, not-for-profit, volunteer-driven, community-funded residential hospice, providing free quality end-of-life care to residents of Kincardine, Huron-Kinloss, Saugeen Shores, and surrounding areas. It also provides free programs for Grief Recovery, End-of-Life Doula services, Death Cafes and End-of-Life Planning workshops.
