New partnership presents wholesome vitamin for hospice | windsoriteDOTca information
A new partnership is for families supported at The Hospice, Erie Shores campus to enjoy home-cooked meals using fresh local produce.
Libro Credit Union and Lee and Maria’s have partnered to deliver free weekly boxes of products to the Erie Shores location of the Hospice of Windsor and Essex County. Hospice volunteers can then use the seasonal fruits and vegetables into meals for families with patients in the hospice.
“Libro Credit Union is passionate about helping our communities – that’s the essence of who we are at Libro,” said Lori Atkinson, Regional Manager, Community Banking at Libro Credit Union. “As a certified B Corporation, Libro uses all of our resources to increase the prosperity of Southwest Ontario and invests 100% of our profits in the people, businesses and communities we serve.”

The approximately $ 1,200 donation is part of Lee and Maria’s Sponsor-a-Box program, which delivers custom-made product boxes to nonprofits across Windsor-Essex on a weekly basis. Other program recipients are the Windsor Residence for Young Men (WRFYM) and the Ronald McDonald House – Windsor location.
“Traditionally, our subscription box members contribute to these donations, but thanks to the generosity of the Libro Credit Union, we can expand our support for the Hospice, Erie Shores Campus, a well-deserved organization,” said Kathy Mastronardi-Black, vice president for Market and wholesale.
The donation will be used to deliver products from over 20 farms in Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent to a hospice.
“Choosing the Hospice as our next partner made perfect sense,” said Mastronardi-Black. “We currently support parents with children in the neonatal intensive care unit through the Ronald McDonald House and young men who need a helping hand through the WRFYM. This donation closes the circle and supports families with a loved one who is nearing the end of life. “
