On November 25, 2017, the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence launched its new Tree of Lights fundraising campaign, on boulevard de la Gare in Vaudreuil-Dorion. In collaboration with its partners, Groupe Harden, Promutuel Insurance Vaudreuil-Soulanges, Caisses Desjardins Vaudreuil-Soulanges, Cubix and Planterra, the Residence is offering the public the chance to purchase lights at a cost of $5 each. Those interested in taking part may do so using the VSPCRF website at www.mspvs.org.
"Every light sold contributes to our Residence’s ability to offer free end-of-life care to our loved ones. Your gesture makes the difference and will illuminate the hearts of patients and their families. "
- Isabelle Salvas, Executive Director, Promutuel Insurance Vaudreuil-Soulanges
