Camrose Chase The Ace

The Charities

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:

Nav-CARE Program

Nav-CARE stands for Navigating, Connecting, Accessing, Resourcing and Engaging. But really it means helping someone.

For three years Kristy Wells and Trudy Lamoriss have spent time visiting with each other, chatting on the phone, going outside for a visit or just hanging out.

“I connected with Trudy. She is a friend now,” said Kristy, a hospice volunteer.

The goal of the program is to improve the quality of life of those with advanced chronic illness by relieving loneliness, isolation and anxiety, by providing someone to be a sounding board.

For Trudy, whose disability makes it difficult to get outside, Kristy’s visits have been a bright spot in the week. 

“When I see Kristy, it fills up my day. She is a bright spot,” said Trudy, who gets help with paperwork, shopping and sometimes laundry from Kristy.

Our volunteers can help an individual by buying groceries, playing scrabble, going out for walks, helping connect with local support programs, or whatever is needed.

Feel free to call our office at 780-608-0636 to find out more about our programs or click on the link to read about our programs. These are free services, but we continue to operate through donations. Even a small donation can help us help others.

Cystic Fibrosis Edmonton & Northern Alberta Chapter

Tools for School will receive 20% of ticket sales from this event to purchase school supplies and provide vouchers from Camrose Staples to families that need financial support to purchase school supplies. These families will also be connected with Camrose & District Support Services and the Camrose Family Resource Centre for information, referral and supports.

Tools for School is a partnership between the Camrose Family Resource Centre, Camrose & District Support Services, and Camrose Staples to collect donations and school supplies. The program reduces a known barrier preventing children and youth from successful learning and participation in school – access to school supplies. There are many families who cannot afford the supplies needed for school and this year the need will be greater due to the economic impacts of COVID-19. Back to school time is always exciting, especially when you have everything you need for learning! Not everyone has that opportunity. Tools for School can help those unable to afford all the necessary supplies – and keep that excitement alive.
