SMH Foundation on final push to reach its goalPosted April 2, 2014
Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation's (SMHF) It takes you... Campaign is $220,000 shy of its $2.76 million fundraising goal, as it gears up for a final push to reach its target.
The campaign, which launched in January 2013 with an on-line auction of Honda Canada's six millionth vehicle assembled in Alliston that raised $19,350, has also included events such as the Foundation Gala 2013, held at the Nottawasaga Resort, which raised over $200,000, and donations from organizations, businesses and private individuals. Last week, the Hospital Auxiliary donated $40,000.
The majority of Hospital capital expenses, such as equipment, are not funded through government programs and must be supplied through local fundraising efforts. The Foundation works to meet the needs of the hospital as requested through the Hospital Board on recommendations from Hospital staff and administrators. They include:
C-Arm and Accessories
Small and Mini Frag Trays
Drills and Saws
Myringotomy Instruments and Tray
Septoplasty Instruments and Tray
Urology Scope Processing Conversion System
Digital Radiographic System
"With a donation towards the final $220,000 you will help achieve the Campaign goal," said Marg Barber, Chair of the It takes you... Campaign," in a press release issued this morning. "Your donation means new equipment and services for your hospital."
Among the beneficiaries of the fundraising proceeds, is Stevenson's new Fracture Clinic, whose equipment has been supplied through the campaign.
There will be another opportunity for the public to contribute during the Stevenson Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Tag Day to be held on Fri., May 2. Members of the Auxiliary will be available wearing their blue vests outside of many local business in the communities of Alliston, Angus, Beeton, Cookstown, and Tottenham from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Last year this event had 62 volunteers and raise over $4,700.
