#GivingTuesday support would help Hospice Prince Edward provide care

#GivingTuesdaynow is a global day of action set for May 5 as an emergency response to unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

The day is being promoted to rally people around the world to tap into the power of human connection and strengthen communities at the grassroots level. Hospice Prince Edward hopes donations will help it provide palliative and bereavement support to families and individuals of all ages, in the County.

“Due to this crisis, we have lost our ability to generate funds through events and other channels, and that creates a significant shortfall for us,” said Melanie Dailey, Community Development Director at Hospice Prince Edward. “It is tough, because we know that every charitable organization in the area is in the same situation, we know that many people have lost their jobs or closed a business, it’s a universal struggle right now. We are all vulnerable.”

The Community of Prince Edward County is invited to join in demonstrating the power of kindness and generosity at www.givingtuesday.ca for local charitable organizations that are registered partners.

Dailey hopes that #givingtuesdaynow will be an opportunity during this crisis to raise awareness for the vital work being done by Hospice, and to remind the community that all services offered are funded primarily through donations.

“Every dollar raised goes directly into operating the residence at 40 Downes Avenue in Picton or delivering programs in the Community.

Hospice Prince Edward is planning some creative ways to engage the community and have fun together, like introducing a virtual ‘Hike for Hospice’.

In the meantime, Dailey is hoping that #givingtuesday will be a call to action that resonates with County residents.

“I do think it is powerful, people all around the world will be giving back at the same time. That is a lot of goodwill being generated and we need that right now.”

If you would like to donate to Hospice Prince Edward you can do so at www.givingtuesday.ca, or www.hospiceprinceedward.ca, by calling 613-645-4040 or with a cheque in the mail to Hospice Prince Edward, 40 Downes Ave, Picton, K0K 2T0.
