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.
Thank you to all our 2020 buyers for helping us to buy 3 Virtual Reality headsets and a professional mural/decal for the kids using the Out-Patient Lab.
We would like to give special thanks to Incredible Closets (and their delivery van) who spent a very long day helping get your flowers delivered as well as PixelSplash who set up the online ordering store again and plotted the delivery routes this year.
