Poultry box Fundraiser 2022, Another Success!

Nov 14, 2022 | News & Conference

On Oct 1st, 2022 the Antigonish Town and County Palliative Care Society partnered with Clydesdale Chicken and Turkey to sell Poultry Boxes. Each box included 10 chickens and 2 turkeys (which are produced by local Nova Scotia farms). This was the 3rd year for the fundraising event and once again it was extremely successful in raising funds for the society. This year’s donation from Clydesdale Chicken and Turkey was $19,602.14. Every dollar goes directly into the society’s Patience Care budget. The society is a charitable organization run by a volunteer board of directors. The society provides equipment, supplies and support to families in the Antigonish and surroundings areas who have loved ones at home at end of life.

The Antigonish Town and County Palliative Care society wishes to acknowledge and thank the following partners and sponsors for their generosity and donation of time and equipment:

  • Steven & Brian Eadie, Joey & Julie McVicar
  • Eden Valley Poultry & Butterball Canada
  • Maia Transport (Nick MacKenzie)
