$1,250,000 Gift Announced from CMH Volunteer Association
The Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation was very pleased to accept an incredible gift of $1,250,000 at its annual Trees of Caring celebration today. The gift was pledged by the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Volunteer Association. The funds are being directed to the Transformation CMH Capital Campaign, which supports the hospital’s new expansion. Along with the Lyle S. Hallman Foundation’s gift to the MRI in June 2011, it is the largest donation to date from a living donor to the hospital. The gift is set to be recognized with the naming of the MRI Suite in honour of the CMH Volunteer Association.
Chuck Snider, President of the CMH Volunteer Association, remarks “We are so excited to see the plans develop for the renewed hospital. Our members will be better able to direct patients and conduct retail fundraising activities in the brand new space. We felt that it was so important to show our support of the CMH Foundation’s fundraising campaign, because this truly is ‘our hospital.’”
The CMH Volunteer Association comprises 400 members who provide volunteer services to the hospital and fundraise to purchase equipment through their Tim Horton’s location, the Red Poppy Gift Shop, the Recovery Room and with HELPP ticket sales.
