Canada Post Job Action Affects Hospice Simcoe Fundraising

Social Service Says It Has Seen Significantly Fewer Donations Compared to Last Year

An unforeseen fallout to the Canada Post job action this year is the impact to some social services’ bottom lines, least of which is Hospice Simcoe.

The organization’s Executive Director Kelly Hubbard says it is grateful for the donations that have come in, but because of the irregular mail delivery, the amount of donations received to date is significantly lower compared to years previous, “With the recent irregular delivery from Canada Post, the amount of donations we have received for our Annual Appeal is significantly lower when compared to November in other years.”

Hospice Simcoe says it has responded to an ever-increasing demand for its services, expecting to care for over 225 people this year. It is are hoping folks could call, visit in person or online, and make a donation to help Hospice Simcoe meet this year’s goal of $1.2million.
