The Mission Hospice Society received a $2,500 donation from CLAC (Christian Labour Association of Canada) as part of the union’s Building Communities program.
The organization was nominated by Robert Warmerdam, who is a member of CLAC Local 66 employed by Ledcor Resources and Transportation Limited Partnership.
The Mission Hospice Society’s aim is “to enhance the quality of life for individuals and families facing grief and loss or end of life transition through compassionate care, resources, and advocacy.”
“The Mission Hospice Society is honoured to be selected to receive these funds and we will aim to earmark these funds to support our many bereavement and palliative programs we offer the community. Thank you so much for the support. We truly appreciate it,” said Angel Elias, executive director for the Society.
