Believe it or not, Christmas is just around the corner. You will soon be able to order holiday plants from the Victoria General Hospital Auxiliary’s annual Poinsettias for Patients campaign. The holiday tradition features top-quality plants grown locally by Hilltop Greenhouses.
The annual Poinsettias for Patients campaign sold more than $14,000 of the traditional Christmas plants this year, said Valerie Smith, past president of the VGHA and convenor of the campaign. Proceeds from this year’s effort will go toward improvements to a new out-patient lab, Hospital at Home, as well as providing a heartfelt thank you to frontline workers at the hospital.
