May 14, 2018 - More than 11-hundred personal hygiene items collected for Maison McCullough Hospice on behalf of St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School.

From body wash to bath salts and wipes, the students at St. Benedict’s Catholic school have been collecting items for Maison McCullough Hospice.

Coined the Bear Necessities Campaign a few years ago, the students collect the items in their effort to be caring family members and collaborative contributors.

This year, the students turned it into a friendly house competition. From Karhu to Urso, the houses have been collecting very specific items for patients who are nearing the end of life in the palliative care facility. Karhu took top honours.

More than 11 hundred items were collected ranging from shaving razors, dry shampoo, hair brushes, combs and diapers and will be delivered to the hospice in the coming days.
