The cost of linen services are not covered by government funding and therefore must be covered through donations.

The South Kent Wind Community Fund, a donor advised fund of the Chatham Kent Community Foundation recently approved a grant of $8,400 to support the cost of linen service for residents of Chatham-Kent Hospice.

“The comfort of our residents is our top priority. The linen service ensures that there are always clean, sheets and towels available and helps us maintain a high level of infection control” shared Maureen Eyres – Care Manager.

“This generous grant is very much appreciated. We need to raise $100,000 each month in donations to cover ongoing operating expenses so this gift will help us reach that goal” shared Jodi Maroney – Executive Director, Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation.

Since opening the doors in April 2016, Chatham-Kent Hospice has cared for over 567 families from across Chatham-Kent.
