Special Campaign Gift Announced at 29th Trees of Caring Kick-off
Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation partnered with Chartwell Queens Square Retirement Residence to host their 29th Annual Trees of Caring kick-off. Festive music and treats were enjoyed by residents, donors, and members of the community, as messages were shared about the thousands of lives touched every year because of essential funding from Trees of Caring.
Last year over $325,000 was raised from the community and local businesses in support of Trees of Caring. Funds raised through this season’s appeal will go towards the Women and Children’s department for specialized equipment.
At this year’s kick-off, CMH also announced a remarkable gift from a new Gold Star sponsor. RE/MAX Realtor, Faisal Susiwala, has donated a generous $130,000, $1 on behalf of each Cambridge resident. Additional recognition will be provided through the naming of the Teen Lounge in the Paediatric Department of the new wing.

Woodland Park PS has made a difference by brightening the holidays for our young patients!
Baby it was cold outside!
However…. inside the hospital some special elves from Woodland Park PS warmed up CMH by donating loads of toys.
We would like to thank Woodland Park Public School, Principal Paul Schlegel, Ms. Val Riegle and the students of Me to We and all the students and families of the school who donated the toys.
Santa’s helpers were on hand to help accept the donation: Bert from ER, Tracy our Child Life Specialist and Sue Lockett from the Foundation. It took 3 loads on Santa’s sleigh to deliver all the toys to Pediatrics. Woodland Park PS has made a difference by brightening the holidays for our young patients! May all the children enjoy a healthy and joyous holiday season.

Keyspire Toy Donation
December arrives with warmth from the team at Keyspire, Nidhi lead the group organizing a Toy Drive for the Cambridge Memorial Hospital at their location on Pinebush Road.
Oh, did they ever collect some fabulous toys for our littlest of patients! Nidhi’s special elves helping out were Sandra, Valerie, and Tara. On hand to accept the donation was Surekha Shenoy CMHF, Chair, Susan Lockett, Director of Development and Tracy Astorino our Child Life Specialist at CMH. The Keyspire team were welcomed with appreciation and informed of the great impact their donations make on the children who stay with us. (You may recognize Keyspire as the company founded by HGTV’s Income Property host, Scott McGillivray, alongside with President and Co-Founder Michael Sarracini…who knew they were located in Cambridge?)
