It's trying to be spring!
Time to fill your freezers again
We can help you and you can help Hospice
Welcome to our "spring" fundraiser that will not only fill your freezer with top quality BC produces products from Two Rivers Specialty Meats but will also support the work of hospice in our community.
All money raised through this fundraiser will stay local and be used to provide free programs & services for people at one of the most vulnerable times of their lives - facing a terminal illness, cargiving a loved one who is dying and grieving the loss of that death.
We invite you to Help Hospice Help Others by placing an order today. We are offering a variety of options that we hope will suit everyone's needs. Please help us by telling your friends, families, co-workers or fellow volunteers about this great opportunity.

At Hospice we believe that the dying should experience dignity and peace, their caregivers should get the help they need, and their friends and family should be supported in their grief. We have been serving the community for over 30 years and are Canada's first community based Hospice. We are a non-profit charitable organization.
Dying, caregiving and grieving are three of life’s greatest challenges that deserve compassionate and caring support. Hospice professional staff and trained volunteers provide a variety of free services.
