Women’s Institute donates $5,500 to Holmberg House

The organization raised funds for the facility on the Campus of Care in Abbotsford.

The Upper Sumas Women’s Institute (USWI) Society recently presented a cheque of $5,500 to Abbotsford Hospice Society’s Holmberg House.

The funds were raised at the USWI’s Valentine’s dinner, dance and auction at The Rancho in Abbotsford.

Holmberg House is an adult hospice currently under construction on the Campus of Care on Marshall Road adjacent to Abbotsford Regional Hospital.

The USWI is passionate about supporting the community and teaching fundamental skills, such as the four quilts crafted for Matthew’s House earlier this year.

Matthew’s House, a respite facility for children living with complex healthcare needs, is also part of the Campus of Care. It opened last November.
