Supporting the Fairley Family Hospice Transportation Program


Our Goal = $65,000

Raised to Date = $18,874.50


What is the Face to Face Campaign?

The Hospice Face to Face campaign was founded by John Fairley of TV Cogeco in 2003 to help support programs and services at The Hospice of Windsor and Essex County Inc. The campaign runs from August 15th - September 30th every year. This year, the annual campaign will help to support the Fairley Family Hospice Transportation Program and we need your help!

One male and four female patients and volunteers gather in front of the Hospice Wellness Centre and a patient transportation van, driven by a female volunteer.

Did you know that in the past year alone, we have provided more than 6,500 rides to patients and their caregivers, bringing them to medical appointments, treatments or to the Hospice Wellness Centre for programs? Although we have 52 volunteer drivers who help us to run our transportation program, each ride still costs about $10 each way.

Each donation for Face to Face contributes towards the $65,000 we need to raise to continue our transportation program for another year. Your contributions will make an immediate and lasting difference in the community, ensuring that there is a helping hand and a much needed ride available to the patients and families who use our services.
