Every donation made to the Red Deer Hospice Society during February will be matched by the Red Deer Twilight Homes Foundation.
Donations will be matched to a maximum of $10,000 from Twilight, and a combined total of $20,000.
“We are so fortunate to be able to partner with an incredible local community builder to raise money for end of life care in central Alberta,” said Jerri Taylor, executive director with Red Deer Hospice Society.
“It’s great for donors to know that every dollar they give in February give equals two!”
Current COVID-19 restrictions have prevented Red Deer Hospice from holding traditional fundraising events, including its yearly gala which has typically been its largest fundraising event.
“It has been a perfect storm in terms of needing to get creative to find new ways to raise funds in a very tough economy while balancing the increased operational costs resulting from the pandemic,” Taylor said.
Red Deer Twilight Homes Foundation has been a long-time supporter of the Red Deer Hospice Society and was instrumental in both the initial construction of the house in 2005 and the recent expansion in 2019.
