NPD’s Herman HE made his first debut at Hospice Simcoe’s Gala, “Hospice from the Heart” in February. The numbers are in, and Hospice Simcoe’s Volunteer Gala Committee exceeded an all time fundraising goal of $75,000.00!

For 25 years, Hospice staff and volunteers have been helping the people of Simcoe County live their last days to the fullest by providing high quality palliative care, from the time of diagnosis of a life-limiting illness through death and, continuing with bereavement support for families. “Thank you to the many sponsors, and everyone who made it out despite the wintery weather. Your presence, passion and support reaches out to every person and family that comes through the doors of Hospice Simcoe. Approximately every $400.00 raised provides 24 hours of compassionate care and support to residents and their families ....we are most grateful ", says Mary Jane Adams, Gala Event Coordinator.

NPD has been a proud supporter of Hospice House since it opened the doors in 2009. NPD believes in sponsoring organizations that strive to find better solutions when dealing with everyday life. “I got involved with the Hospice Simcoe because the compassionate care was real and it makes a difference, not only when the last breath is drawn, but after as well,” says Michael Howe, NPD President.

NPD is a Simcoe County based research and manufacturing facility that develops biological products and equipment for the Pest Control, Lawn and Turf, Sanitation and Cleaning, Automotive and Food Processing Industries. “It was fun to see the Co-Chair of the Hospice Gala Committee, Marilyn win Herman by outbidding everyone else. She had a keen eye, and bought it for her husband who owns an commercial cleaning company,” remarks Michael about the event. For more information about how NPD “gets involved”.
