THANK YOU Coldbrook and District Lions Club for your generous donation $10,000 to the Carey Me program! On hand to receive the cheque, March 8th, was Marilynn Carey and VRH Foundation CEO, Ellen Crowley.

The CAREY ME fund provides financial assistance to persons with life threatening illnesses, who choose to remain in the comfort of their home with family and loved ones. Last year, over 100 patients in the Annapolis Valley have received assistance for in-home end of life care.

CAREY ME is a memorial fund in remembrance of Bill Carey maintained by volunteers, donor gifts, and fundraising events.Bill’s wife Marilynn and daughter Stephanie Carey enabled Bill to spend his last days at home in the comfort of family and friends and they wanted to help other families do the same. Items can include medical supplies, special feeds, palliative medications, and respite care services.

Thank you to the Lions for consistently and generously serving their communities.
