Local Partnership With McCormick Canada
McCormick Canada has a long standing history of supporting St. Joseph’s Hospice. Stepping up as a local leader, they were one of the first businesses to donate toward the Capital Campaign and you’ll see their generosity displayed within our Hospice kitchen.
In March 2018, they decided to make a difference for those living with a palliative illness by giving the gift of food. “It costs $30,000 a year for St. Joseph’s Hospice to feed those living with a terminal illness within residential care and we wanted to help” shared General Manager, Andrew Foust.
As part of the signature fundraising event, Four Elements for Hospice: AIR 2018, McCormick Canada generously offered to match donations up to $5,000 to ensure this vital aspect of care was funded. On the night of the event, Mr. Foust shocked the crowd by making an announcement that they would increase their gift to match all donations up to $15,000. This level of generosity inspired everyone in the room helping to raise $51,155 through the heartfelt Fund-A-Need.
