It's part of the Misericordia Health Centre Foundation's annual Angel Squad.campaign that runs Dec.3 and Dec.4.

Organizers say the fundraising goal this year is $75,000. The money will go towards programs for the 245 people living in long-term care at Misericordia Health Centre.

The programs rely on private donations and include music, art, gardening and pet therapy.
