C.A.R.P. Halton Chapter Supports Local Hospices with $10,000 in Donations

C.A.R.P.’s Halton’s Vision is for seniors to live in a society that allows them to have active, independent, purposeful lives, as they age in the Halton Region. An important part of that is advocating for and on behalf of seniors within the Halton Region. One of the most pressing issues for seniors is the need for quality long-term care and hospice options. Part of CARP Halton Chapters mandate is to support other associations and charitable organizations that benefit our members by creating awareness, participating in their fundraisers, working on joint initiatives and when possible, providing community grants.

To support the great work C.A.R.P. Halton Chapter is doing in the community, this past holiday season Noreen Oldfield, Director of Community Engagement with C.A.R.P. and Senior Consultant with IG Wealth Management, was awarded the top grant in IG’s “Empower Your Tomorrow” community giving campaign of $5,000 for the Carpenter Hospice in Burlington. To further their goal of supporting hospice care across Halton for our members, C.A.R.P. Halton Chapter has matched this grant with $2,500 going to the Ian Anderson House in Oakville and $2,500 in support of the Townsend Smith Foundation that is working hard to build a hospice centre for North Halton.

Together we hope to help seniors empower their tomorrow by having access to comfortable care and choice in how to spend their last tomorrows.
