OUR RESPONSE TO THE COVID - 19 CRISIS

Due to the current concerns around COVID-19, the Campbell River Hospice Society’s Board of Directors has determined that it is in the best interest to act on the latest advice and recommendation of the BC Government. It is crucial in the current and ever-changing situation that we take all reasonable steps to protect the well-being of those using our services, as well as our staff and volunteers. Therefore, all our regular services and programs held at Yucalta, Hospital, Community and within the Hospice Care Centre have been suspended temporarily.  We will continue to work closely with our partners in the community to identify clients who may be at risk and continue to support them as much as possible.


Counseling support will be provided by phone. We will continue to find inventive solutions to support clients. Rest assured that all our services will be reviewed frequently with the aim of returning to full-service capacity as soon as possible.

 

Sadly, our Second to None Thrift Store which is responsible for 46% of our annual budget is now closed until further notice.


Also, it is with regret that the Ocean Pacific Boat Show scheduled for April 4 is canceled. However, we will be hosting an Online Auction, Sponsored by Campbell River Mirror to continue fundraising. This auction will include many wonderful items that have been donated by generous local businesses and community members. The Online Auction will start in early April. Please watch the Campbell River Mirror, our Facebook page and our website for updates. Your support by bidding and sharing the Online Auction information will be greatly appreciated.


We express our sincere gratitude for the support we have received from our community and greatly appreciate your understanding and cooperation during these challenging times. We are also profoundly grateful to our Health Care staff for their dedication and efforts; thank you for all that you do!

 

Sincerely,

 

Campbell River Board of Directors
