“This contribution is going towards the purchase of new mattresses and new bed frames in our guest rooms. The mattresses and frames we are currently using are almost all 15 years old, if not older than that. Our guests and their families, while in Sudbury for medical treatments or appointments, require a good, restful night’s sleep in order to recover as fast as possible.
Our organization does not receive government support, therefore we rely on fundraisers, donations and grants to help continue providing the service we provide to members of Northern/Northeastern Ontario and beyond.
This is our 3rd year in a row receiving a grant from the SREB. A friend of mine is a real estate agent in Sudbury and passed along the information to me as she knows I am always looking for new ways to bring in funds for our facility.
We are beyond grateful for the support we have received from the SREB and I’m sure all other charities who benefit from these donations are just as grateful.
Thank you so much for all you do for the community.” – Karly Bortolotti, Fundraising/Marketing Coordinator.
