Camrose Chase The Ace
Hospice Society of Camrose and District
The Hospice Society of Camrose and District (HSCD) is excited to have been chosen as the major project recipient for the Chase the Ace Progressive raffle. 20% of ticket sales from every event in the raffle is designated for donation to HSCD. This event the spotlight is on:
GRIEF SUPPORT GROUPS
Our eight-week grief support group gives those who are grieving the tools and skills they need to help move through their grief. Volunteer grief program facilitator, Mary Ann Pastuck, said the group is for anyone dealing with the loss of a loved one: either a spouse, child or parent.
“These people are living through the death of a loved one. They need some help moving through the grief process.”
Pastuck said the process of talking among the group helps the participants realize they are not alone. Talking through their feelings is a pathway through their grief.
If someone you know would benefit from our grief support group, or any of our programs contact our office at 780-608-0636. Our programs are free, but we rely on your donations so we can help those in need.
Flagstaff Food Bank
The Flagstaff Food Bank will receive 20% of ticket sales from this event to purchase food, hygiene products and supplies in short supply.
Community support has allowed the Flagstaff Food Bank to expand from its beginnings in 2002 to purchasing their current building in 2010 and hiring a coordinator to manage food and supplies while coordinating volunteers.
The Flagstaff Region of East Central Alberta encompasses over 4,000 square kilometres. Open 2 days a week, the Food Bank can provide up to 64 food hampers each month to a clientele that is about 40% working adults, 20% seniors and 40% children. The Christmas Sharing Program in conjunction with other community agencies generates up to 140 Christmas Hampers serving 350 Flagstaff individuals.
The Food Bank is proud of the ability of the community to give a leg up to individuals and families finding it tough to make ends meet.
