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.

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.
