“Carey Me: Supporting Palliative Care in the Home” Fundraiser:
“Remember These: Pre-Loved Holiday Decoration Sale”
Saturday, November 12; Port Williams Community Center; 10am-3pm
Bill Carey lived his final days as he wished, at home surrounded by family and friends. In 2004, Bill’s wife and daughter started “Carey Me,” a charitable fund whose purpose is to provide financial assistance to individuals with life-limiting illnesses who, like Bill, choose to be cared for in the comfort of their own home. Since 2004, “Carey Me” volunteers and community partners have raised $285,000 through fundraising events and memorial gifts, and have provided financial support to 900 families.
This year’s major fundraising event, “Remember These: Pre-Loved Holiday Decoration Sale,” gives people a chance to recycle holiday decorations and enjoy a fun day of shopping for new-to-you holiday trimmings.
Donations of Christmas decorations can be dropped off in all Annapolis Valley Regional Library branches between November 1 and November 11. Donations are administered by the Valley Regional Hospital Foundation and qualify for charitable tax donations.
