Kevin Knight (Meaford Harbour 5K Run/Walk committee member) congratulates Charlotte Woodhouse on being the top medal winner of the 19 and under Walker category at the July 8th 5K Run/Walk. All proceeds from this annual event are donated to the Meaford Hospital Foundation.
The Meaford Hospital Foundation was established to raise, receive, and manage money for the purpose of purchasing capital equipment and building improvements at the Meaford Hospital . This funding role is critical to the hospital's viability since the government provides few funds for capital purchases. Funds are derived from a variety of sources including gifts from individuals, clubs, associations and businesses; bequests; memorials; mail campaign and investment interest.
Through the generosity of caring donors, the Meaford Hospital Foundation raises and manages funds for new and replacement medical equipment at the Meaford Hospital. The Foundation strives to provide better health care for patients and subsequently state of the art tools for the staff.
