Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Campbell River Hospice Society has lost and will continue to lose a tremendous amount of funding that allows us to provide our services to the community of Campbell River and the surrounding areas. We have been forced to close our Second to None Thrift Store which is 46% of our annual revenue. This, plus the cancellation of all fundraising activities, has placed us in a position of not receiving ongoing revenue other than generous emergency funding from community groups such as the 100 Women Who Care.
