In staying true to our innovative and nurturing spirit, we are adopting a new tradition in honour of the elderly patients we serve. It seems most fitting that we embark on an awareness initiative reflecting on the most treasured demographic in every culture around the world – grandparents!
On Sunday, September 10, 2017 and then on the second Sunday in September each year thereafter, we will pay tribute to grandparents everywhere. We will be hosting an Open House party at Providence on that Sunday, complete with family activities, an opportunity to liaise with some NHL legends and share refreshments and fun in a community that simply loves grandparents. All are welcome to attend this public event.
As part of this momentous occasion, Providence Healthcare Foundation has partnered with Rexall, a brand in alignment with our Mission and this day of celebrations. Our goal – to raise $50,000 to create a greater awareness about the importance of a grandparent in sharing their legacies and passing the torch of knowledge and wisdom to those who surround them. Rexall is generously matching every dollar fundraised (up to $25,000) each year for the next four years.
We are asking people all over the GTA and beyond to share what their grandparent means to them by sending us videos, uploading photos, sharing stories, and making an online donation in honour of your grandparent. This day is about celebrating one of the most cherished and largest demographic in our country! It is our vision to grow this celebration and expand partnerships with those who also have a soft spot for grandparents. Send your photos and stories to firstname.lastname@example.org.
