Aldergrove Financial Group has committed to donate $50,000 toward the Abbotsford Hospice Society. The funds will be used for the creation and development of a new family-oriented facility.

“This facility is vital to the community and will house the existing society and a hospice residence for adults 19 years and older suffering from a terminal illness,” says Aldergrove Credit Union CEO Gus Hartl.

“As an organization we are so proud and honoured to play a part in the building of this facility – we know the positive impact it will have on the community and how much it will help those who need to utilize it.”

Abbotsford Hospice Society executive director Debbie Lehmann said, “This year the Abbotsford Hospice Society celebrates 25 years of helping people who are dying and providing free support services to families. A year and a half ago the society launched a capital campaign to build the first adult hospice residence in Abbotsford. The new two-storey hospice residence, named Holmberg House, will be designed to provide holistic patient care in a non-institutional setting 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“On any journey there are so many that work together to achieve a vision and the campaign continues with $2.5 million still needed to reach the $7.5 dollar goal. We deeply appreciate this commitment by Aldergrove Financial Group.”
