Huronia Alarm & Fire Security Inc. makes donation-in-kind to Hospice Georgian Triangle, Campbell House

Hospice Georgian Triangle, Campbell House, is a residential palliative care residence for patients with a terminal diagnosis who are in the last stages of their life.  This organization also provides support for the families and friends of the patient and provides a home-away-from-home experience with 24/7 professional care.

Hospice Georgian Triangle’s Campbell House hospice serves residents in the communities from the Town of Blue Mountains to Collingwood, to Wasaga Beach and Clearview Township.

“Continued support for services that we feel are an integral part of our community form the basis for our corporate donations program at Huronia,” said Rob Thorburn Jr, President & CEO at HAFS.  “We have a number of relationships with similar organizations in the communities that we serve, and we believe that donating time, products and ongoing monitoring services are just some of the ways that we can help reduce the financial burden that these charitable organizations face each year.”

“The Hospice Georgian Triangle is an important part of the healthcare system in our area that often gets overlooked,” said Chris Johnson, Sales Consultant at HAFS who donated his sales commission for this project.  “When the capital campaign to build an addition on Campbell House began, I had no idea that the hospice needed to raise 50% of their yearly operating budget, in addition to the funds being raised to construct the new wing.  This organization depends on the generosity of the community to operate, and that’s part of the reason I donated my commission.”

“At the start of any capital campaign, there’s a lot of enthusiasm, but as the project nears completion we depend more and more on the support of our community partners to help our staff, volunteers, residents and visitors continue to receive the ongoing physical, emotional and spiritual care that they need to help them through coping with life-limiting illness,” said Kelly Borg, Executive Director at Hospice Georgian Triangle.  “Huronia has proven to be been one of those special community partners who is committed to working with us for the long haul.  And for that, we are truly grateful.”

Huronia Alarm & Fire Security Inc. has been in business for over 45 years and is Central Ontario’s leading provider of home and business security and monitoring services, CCTV, fire and safety, lock, key and safe products and services, home theatre, audio and video consultation and entertainment room design, as well as cabling and smart home wiring for today's home automation requirements.
