Several businesses and organizations have stepped up recently and made a donation to the Chatham-
Kent Hospice Capital Campaign.
“We are overwhelmed by the support received to date, but not surprised,” says Jennifer Wilson, Chair, Chatham-Kent Hospice Board of Directors. “Chatham-Kent is known for being a very generous community. This helps us get that much closer to providing compassionate end-of-life care in a home- like setting, free of charge for people with life-limiting illness as well as support for families and friends who are suffering the loss of a loved one.”
MAHLE Filter Systems in Tilbury donated $25,000. MAHLE is a leading global development partner for the automotive and engine industry offering unique systems competence in the combustion engine and engine peripherals.
