A Message from the Foundation Chair

It’s an exciting time for healthcare in Haldimand County!. It has been amazing to witness our community rally together for our new Emergency Department.

We are so grateful for your outpouring of generosity, which has already secured $2.1 million in gifts and pledges including #1 Smile Cookie sales in all of Canada.

We have less than $1 million to raise for the new Emergency Department!

The final stretch of construction is in view. Drive by, see the addition to our community…it looks fantastic! It is with great anticipation that we can give an exciting gift to our community, reaching our $3 million-dollar fundraising goal for the new Emergency Department!

This holiday season, we hope you consider giving a one-time gift or a three-year pledge towards the Every Moment Counts Campaign through our annual Trees of Hope program. I encourage you to look inside this newsletter for further details. Your consideration of support is greatly appreciated.

Your gifts are instrumental in bringing about positive change to our hospital and our Emergency Department campaign needs you. The new Emergency Department is being solely funded through our Every Moment Counts Campaign, a grant from Haldimand County for equipment, a gift from the Volunteer

Association for furnishings, and hospital reserves that have accumulated over time. The Ontario government is not and was not, at any time providing funding for this project.

We are so close to reaching our goal and we know that you, our generous community, can enable us to continue to provide extraordinary care close to home. We thank you for your thoughtful consideration and send best wishes of good health and happiness during the coming holiday season.

Thank you for joining us in our commitment to the Haldimand War Memorial Hospital.
