The Castlegar Hospice Society has kicked off its Celebrate a Life 2018 fundraising campaign.

The theme for this year’s display is Santa’s workshop and is located in the Super 8 Motel.

People are invited to put a card in remembrance of a loved one on one of the memorial trees and make a donation to the Castlegar Hospice. Corporate donations from Area J, Mercer Celgar, Naud Lester Investments, Big Stick Contracting, Glade Materials Testing and Bill’s Heavy Duty got the campaign off to a great start.

The display and memorial trees will remain up until January 5th and donations can be made during that time.

The Castlegar Hospice Society provides essential health services in the areas of hospice care, grief and bereavement support, professional training and community education. The society will also be having a special holiday-themed grief support event called “Handling the Holidays” on Sat. Dec. 8.
