CORNWALL, Ontario - The thoughtfulness of our community is inspiring!  

Our team at CCHF sends a big THANK YOU to Tish Humphries, organizer of Project Silent Night, who along with 36 donors, raised over $25,000 for the purchase of 11 new chair beds. These beds will  help caretakers get the rest they need while staying at CCH with their loved ones.  According to Tish, “It sounds like a small thing, but just a couple of hours sleep can really make a difference in alleviating some of your anxiety and stress and giving you the strength to take care of the people in your life."
