MV Hospice benefits from Christmas decoration fundraiser

Jenna Stamplicoski knew she wanted to help out the Madawaska Valley Hospice after she broke her foot earlier this year. The mom of three required a walker, and was able to borrow one from the hospice’s loan cupboard. To pay it forward, Jenna and her friend Ally Hudder decided to hold a Christmas decoration sale of their beautiful handmade Christmas urns. Above from left: Madawaska Valley Hospice Executive Director Lisa Hubers, Jenna Stamplicoski and Ally Hudder (photo submitted)

Stamplicoski and Hudder got a headstart with pots donated by Barry’s Bay Home Hardware and by The Old School Cafe, Laundry and Greenhouses in Combermere; then they collected greenery from the outdoors. In just two short weeks, the two friends were able to exceed their goal of $500 and raised an impressive $1,020 for the Madawaska Valley Hospice. The money will go toward critical equipment needs and service for the hospice.
