FAMILY HOLIDAY GRIEF PACKAGES – SPONSORED BY PLAINS MIDSTREAM CANADA

With the generous grant from Plains Midstream Canada, we were able to assemble 30 Family Holiday Grief Packages to support families in commemorating and mourning after the death of a loved one. Families received a link to a virtual guide through each activity, a memorial candle lighting ritual, and a storybook reading. These packages served a total of 65 children in the community.

Each grief package included:

* Gingerbread making kit & hot chocolate mix

* Supplies for a memorial activity and art activity

* Copy of the book "The Memory Box”

* Children's memory scarves- handmade by volunteers and friends of Hospice

* Gift certificate for pizza dinner
