To mark the opening, CIBC is donating $2,500 to Hospice Vaughan, which offers supportive care to individuals from the Vaughan community and their families who are facing a life-threatening illness. The funds will go towards helping the hospice's team of professionally trained staff and volunteers provide quality care, counsel individuals and their families, and ensure the bereaved family and friends are supported. "This generous donation will bring improvements to our services for youth and our Day Program for the elderly," said Nancy Henry, Executive Director of Hospice Vaughan. "The funds will allow us to better address the needs of children who are grieving a death." "Our highly trained social workers go into the schools to educate and support students and staff with individual, group and crisis response support," continued Ms. Henry. "The funds will also provide a year's worth of nutritious lunches for our elderly clients who we bring to the hospice where they find a warm and caring environment to share their concerns, receive support, and enjoy a hot meal. The outing provides a break for the at-home caregiver and gives the client an opportunity for social interaction and emotional support, which lifts their spirits as they face their health challenges."
