The Hygge Hug Blanket Campaign

The Hygge Hug Blanket Campaign is an opportunity for you to say thank-you to Health Care workers in a tangible way: by providing a blanket as a warm hug.

During National Nurses’ Week from May 10th to the 16th, and just after National Physician’s Day on May 1st, we’ll deliver blankets to our local Health Care Workers at Alexandra Marine and General Hospital, the Maitland Valley Family Medical Centre, and DynaCare.

Show your support by donating to the blanket fund by April 15th using this link, or by e-mail at kimberley.payne@amgh.ca. Each donation of $50 provides you with a $20 tax receipt and EVERY employee will receive a blanket along with a community Hygge Hug.

Each donation of $50 provides you with a $20 tax receipt and EVERY employee will receive a blanket along with a community Hygge Hug.

Help us meet our goal!
