Ackard staff have volunteered their time in doing much needed maintenance and repair at the hospice as well as supplying needed upgrades to the kitchen facilities. On an ongoing partnership with Pilgrims Hospice, Ackard continues to contribute to the Hospice Annual Gala both in live auction items and furnishing the wine for the dinner.
Ackard has an ongoing partnership with the Sawatzky/Samaritan Foundation which involves financial donations, fund raising and giving of their personal time to build houses in the Dominican Republic on a yearly mission. Donated clothing, medicine, and miscellaneous items are also collected and brought out. This year’s fund raising so far has involved Ackard staff offering a service to pick up and dispose of household junk.

Funds donated are also sent to India for an orphanage. Money is raised to build houses for seniors and a school has been built.
