BROCKVILLE – The palliative care department for the Brockville-area hospice has received another vehicle in order to make home visits.

Members of 1000 Islands Toyota presented a Corolla last week to the Brockville & District Hospice Palliative Care Service during a local hospice fundraising golf tournament.

The service runs out of the Garden Street site of the Brockville General Hospital.

In 2012, the dealership did the same thing and decided to repeat the gift this year.
