Bruce Fox used his woodworking talents to build 10 of these bird houses for the Hospice, Erie Shores Campus! In November, 2022, the bird houses were installed outside of each room to be enjoyed by the residents and their visitors. Larry and Bruce, pictured below, installed all of the bird houses themselves! These houses were off the market immediately and have been occupied since!
Thank you, Larry and Bruce, for this beautiful addition to our local hospice.

On Tuesday, October 25th, 2022, Miss Lizzy’s Foundation, presented Erie Shores Health Foundation with a cheque for $17,500 in support of the Hospice, Erie Shores Campus.

Miss Lizzy’s Foundation is a longtime supporter of ESHF and many other causes across Windsor-Essex. Miss Lizzy’s Foundation holds Miss Lizzy’s Tea a huge high tea luncheon annually. However, the fabulous event had to be put on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions. Despite that, Miss Lizzy’s Foundation strongly believes in the importance of giving and so found alternative, creative ways to raise funds and continue to generously support Erie Shores Health Foundation and the Hospice, Erie Shores Campus.

Of the generous $17,500 donated, Gino DelCiancio, husband of the late Liz DelCiancio, raised $11,155 from holding local car shows (CLICK HERE TO SEE CAR SHOW VIDEO). This is such a unique initiative and a special way to carry on Miss Lizzy’s Foundation’s mission.

ESHF is immensely grateful for our long-running relationship with Miss Lizzy’s Foundation. We are both looking forward to high tea again in the future.
