What's new with Spectrum Health Care Foundation?

Posted on: August 29 2018 / Category: General, Staff, News

Spectrum Health Care Foundation has been doing big things! Our foundation has been actively involved with many organizations that provide services to children, youth and adults across the GTA. Here is what we have been up to so far this year:

Centre for Addiction and Mental Health’s (CAMH) Gifts of Light Patient BBQ & Street Party

We were the presenting sponsor of CAMH’s Gifts of Light Patient BBQ & Street Party, an annual BBQ thrown for CAMH patients. Not only did we provide a donation to help fund the BBQ but our Spectrum employees volunteered their time setting up, prepping the food and cleaning up.

Lumacare's Elder Abuse Awareness Walk

We were the presenting sponsor of Lumacare's 7th annual Elder Abuse Awareness Walk. We had volunteers walk alongside 140 people in attendance at the event, all gathered with the same goal: to help end elder abuse.

Peel Children’s Centre’s (PCC) annual Summer Camp

This year we were able to contribute to PCC's Summer Camp program by making a donation. The donation helped pay for the children's food and activities at the camp.

Arthritis Society's Walk for Arthritis

We were one of the sponsors of the 2018 Walk for Arthritis which held walks throughout Southern Ontario. Our donation and volunteers contributed to the walk to help end arthritis.

Rose of Sharon

Our donation to Rose of Sharon will be used to provide program materials, transportation, cellphone/technology, emergency food/diapers, counselling and classroom resources to teenage mothers/soon-to-be mothers in the Newmarket area.

Sunshine Centre for Seniors

Our donation will be used to employ a social worker and to train volunteers who will be helping the seniors at Sunshine Centre for Seniors in Toronto.
