Surrey Hospice Society is a volunteer based, nonprofit organization serving the community of Surrey, BC Canada.
We provide a wide variety of services and programs - all free of charge - for those facing the end of their life, hospice and palliative care, as well as grief and bereavement support for adults, children and youth who have lost people they love.
We need your help to continue to offer these services and programs as the demand for us is higher than it has ever been and continues to grow daily in these challenging times.With the outbreak of COVID-19 expected to continue into the summer, with no end in sight, our hospice society which relies on holding fundraising events as well as operating thrift stores has had to cancel all our events and close our stores. This has meant a loss of 40% in our organizational revenues. This reduction in funding has placed the operations and indeed the very existence of our Society and our programs in jeopardy. Because of this, the Surrey Hospice Society is making changes to the way that funding is achieved.
Like many charitable organizations, the hospice society relies heavily on events and our thrift stores to raise the money we need. The cancellation of fundraising events and closure of our thrift stores could leave us on the brink of closure. These services are needed more than ever before. We are a critical front line support service, and we are greatly needed in our community.
