You are the Makers of Merry

– THE HEART OF CHRISTMAS IS THE SPIRIT OF GIVING! –

The community continues to support their ‘merry-must-have’—a new Emergency Department! We are in the final stage of our Trees of Hope campaign, and with 8 days left to give we are have already exceeded our $100,000 goal! The expression of generosity and care from our community, since our campaign kicked off on November 1st, has been absolutely incredible, thank you!

– SHIRLEY’S ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS SALE SUCCESS –

There are so many ways to give back to the community, especially during the holiday season! For Shirley Fester she gives back her time and more in support of our hospital! Every year, Shirley hosts her “All Things Christmas Sale”, where anyone can donate their gently used holiday items to her garage sale. Shirley operates the garage sale and donates all revenue to the Dunnville Hospital & Healthcare Foundation and the Emergency Department project. This year her garage sale raised just over $2000! Thank you to all who went to Shirley’s All Things Christmas Sale, picked up some great holiday items and supported our hospital! Volunteers are the backbone of generosity in our community–thank you, Shirley Fester. If you’re interested in volunteering for DHHF, we’d love your help! Apply to be a volunteer today, click here.

– SINCEREST CONDOLENCES –

The Dunnville Hospital & Healthcare Foundation sadly acknowledges the passing of our Chair and Leader, Stan Reid. Stan joined the Board of Directors on October 18, 2007 and, over the past 9 years, has served as a director, Secretary, Vice-Chair and Chair. His knowledge, experience, mentorship and guidance has been invaluable and he will be greatly missed. Condolences to his family and friends.

~~ A man of great experience and wisdom, both of which he shared with many ~~

– HOLIDAY HOURS REMINDER –

Just a reminder, we will be closed Boxing Day Monday December 26 and Tuesday December 27. We are always open online or you can leave a message 905-774-2529.

 

Again, we would like to thank all individuals, community groups and businesses who have purchased lights and stars for our Trees of Hope campaign. Your generous donations, large and small are helping us positively transform healthcare in Dunnville. Thank you for supporting a new Emergency Department at Haldimand War Memorial Hospital!

Merry Christmas from the Dunnville Hospital & Healthcare Foundation!
