During the week of March 23-27, the HPFFA Charity worked to help the Hamilton community by making donations to local charities in need. These charities and organizations are just some of those in Hamilton trying to help those in need during this extremely difficult and challenging time.
The support provided included three $1000.00 cheques being donated to the following:
Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation – specifically for the Covid-19 Fund in which donations help our Hamilton clinical teams with the highest-priority needs.
Food4Kids – typically provides healthy food packages to 1,500 local school children every Friday so that they have nutrition to get them through the weekend. With the closure of schools due to Covid-19, Food4Kids is sending every child on their registry a grocery gift card.
Essential Aid – provides support for families with infants and toddlers who are unable to afford items such as diapers, formula, nutrition and more.
In addition, the HPFFA has promoted and encouraged members to donate blood to Canadian Blood Services. It is safe to donate blood during this time and still so necessary for so many Canadians to receive this lifeline. If you are healthy and can safely donate, please call 1-888-2-DONATE to make an appointment today.
