Canadian Tire Donates $5,000 to Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation from “Blooms for a Cause” Fundraiser

[New Tecumseth, ON – [June 28, 2024] – The Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation (SMHF) is delighted to announce a generous donation of $5,000 from Canadian Tire in Alliston, raised from their successful “Blooms for a Cause” fundraising initiative. This heartfelt contribution directly supports the hospital’s ongoing efforts to provide exceptional healthcare to the community, enhancing our ability to deliver vital services.

“Blooms for a Cause,” launched at Canadian Tire in Alliston, ran from May 11th to June 15th.  Every hanging basket purchased contributed $2 towards healthcare in our community by donating them to SMHF. This initiative not only added beauty to customers’ spaces but also fostered hope and wellness within the community. 

“We are incredibly thankful to Canadian Tire and everyone who participated in the ‘Blooms for a Cause’ fundraiser,” expressed Darlene Mcleod, Interim CEO of SMHF. “Their generosity will have a lasting impact on our community’s health and well-being.  Every dollar raised helps us continue to provide quality healthcare services right here at home.”

Canadian Tire Alliston has again shown its commitment to the community by supporting the hospital. The Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation sincerely thanks Canadian Tire and its customers for their steadfast support.

The Because of you, we can Campaign is the largest campaign in SMHF’s history. Donations received help purchase essential equipment, upgrade technology, and complete critical renovations essential to the transformation and redevelopment of Stevenson Memorial Hospital.  The hospital’s redevelopment plan includes a new Emergency Department that will triple in size. With an Emergency Department built to manage 7,000 visits a year that currently manages close to 40,000 per year, along with a growing population in south Simcoe and surrounding communities, this redevelopment is needed today and for future generations.
