Poinsettias sparkle with generosity on November 25

The Holidays without their fiery colours and long life? No way—not once we’ve adopted one or two. The Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence without the generosity of all those who are so strongly attached to the yearly, irresistibly red poinsettia? Hard to imagine. So, rest assured, the Residence’s poinsettias will be available again this year, from Monday, November 25 to Friday, November 29, at the Centre du jardin Vaudreuil-sur-le-Lac.

The campaign was launched on Friday, November 1st, at the Centre du jardin Vaudreuil-sur-le-Lac (999, Saint-Charles Avenue, Vaudreuil-Dorion).

Priced at $25, the poinsettias will be ready on November 25 at the Centre du jardin and can be picked up until November 29. Orders can be placed as of now (with payment in advance). Contact Ms. Suzie Campeau at scampeau@mspvs.org or at 450-202-2202, extension 139. Plants will also be available at the Palliative Care Residence, in limited quantities. Online reservations are not possible this year.

Residence volunteers can deliver for purchases of five or more plants. Poinsettias will be available at Serres Michaud, 1305 Bord-de-l’Eau Boulevard in Valleyfield, for residents of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield and area, however quantities will be limited.

Over 650 hours of volunteer work are put in at the Centre du Jardin Vaudreuil-sur-le-Lac in one week to prepare and deliver the poinsettias.

Last year, this campaign raised a little over $74,000 for the Residence.
