We All Have Reasons to Love The Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation Celebrates Valentine’s Day by Saying Thank You
SYDNEY, N.S – The Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation is spreading the love to Cape Breton Regional Hospital staff and healthcare donors this upcoming Valentine’s Day.
The “We All Have Reasons to Love” campaign will kick off on Wednesday February 14, 2018, and will include a three day “thank-a-thon,” where Foundation board members and staff will spend the days calling and visiting donors and volunteers of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital to thank them for ensuring more Cape Bretoners can stay at home for care. The goal is to reach hundreds of donors to tell them about the impact they are having on the healthcare of Cape Bretoners.
“It is really important to thank our donors,” notes Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation Board Chair, Glen Brann. “Visiting donors, volunteers, community partners and healthcare professionals shows them that we could not do this without their support.”
The “We All Have Reasons to Love” campaign will include some other special “thank yous”. Foundation staff and members of the board of directors will visit community donors, at work or at home, with a special sweet treat to say thanks. Healthcare workers, who work hard all year round to provide excellence in care, will have “candy grams” delivered to their units to thank them for their dedication to caring for Cape Bretoners.
Community members can follow along online with the “We All Have Reasons to Love” event by following the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation on social media at @BecauseUCare on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Since 1992, the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation, in partnership with the community has raised more than $50 million to purchase equipment, and fund upgrades at the Regional Hospital. This has dramatically reduced wait times and provided an increased menu of services – closer to home. The Foundation has recently been accredited under Imagine Canada’s national Standards Program, which promotes transparency of charities and nonprofits, and strengthens public confidence in organizations and the sector as a whole.Thanks to the generosity of the Cape Breton community, our foundation has been able to purchase priority equipment and fund services which provide world-class care, closer to home.
