100 People Who Care support Hospice Prince Edward

At the 100 People Who Care presentation of $8,000 to Hospice Prince Edward were Jim Rose, Melanie Dailey, Karen Mayer and David Fox.

100 People Who Care PEC members showed their love for Hospice Prince Edward this week, presenting an $8,000 donation to support its many services.

This marks one dozen donations the membership has made to charities in Prince Edward County. The group meets quarter (online during the pandemic) to select its recipient from member nominations. It is an informal group which has no board or bank account. It works on the concept of simplicity – minimum input from members for maximum impact. Members commit to donating $100 at each quarterly meeting, they nominate and vote on recipients. Outside of the pandemic the members met for a social time at the Waring House to conduct their brief business meeting.

Six charities were nominated via email during this round and the top three selected by electronic voting were The HUB Child and Family Centre, Whattam Memorial Walkway and Hospice Prince Edward.

Hospice has been providing visiting volunteers since 1984, trained to offer companionship, respite care and reassurance to palliative patients. The resiential hospice at 40 Downes Ave., in Picton has three private rooms and common areas such as a kitchen, lounge and outdoor patio and gardens for families to gather to be with their loved ones at end of life. It also provides grief and bereavement support one-on-one, in groups and virtually to anybody experiencing the loss of a loved one.

All of Hospice Prince Edward’s services are free of charge.

Previous recipients of the 100 People Who Care PEC members include The Wellington Storehouse Food Bank, Alternatives for Women, The ROC, 851 Prince Edward Royal Canadian Air Cadets, County Kids Read, Heal with Horses, Wellington Auxiliary Rescue Association, Reaching for Rainbows, Glenwood Cemetery, Picton United Church Food Bank and the Prince Edward Learning Centre.
