Ron’s No Frills gives back with a $4,700 donation to the West Haldimand Hospital & Healthcare Foundation
(September 29, 2022) – Ron’s No Frills and the store’s loyal customers raised $4,700 which will go towards the purchase of vital medical equipment for West Haldimand General Hospital (WHGH).
“When everyone gives what they can, we are able to accomplish so much good for the hospital,” said Lisa Hostein, Executive Director of the West Haldimand Hospital and Healthcare Foundation. “I want to thank our incredible community partner, Ron’s No Frills, for carrying out this campaign which will help purchase life-saving equipment, that will help front-line staff continue to provide exceptional patient care in the communities that we serve.”
The $4,700 donation from the Ron’s No Frills campaign will go towards securing a Coagulation Analyzer, which is used to test for potential heart attack-inducing blood clots.
“It’s not myself or my staff who made this donation, it is our amazing customers who made this contribution, and they are giving it to everyone in the community, who will require care at the hospital, said Ron Fairburn, store owner. “I have used the hospital, and so have my family members, and I know firsthand of the excellent work they do for our community. The staff at WHGH are just phenomenal, and anything we can do to help the community and give back to the hospital, we are more than happy to do so.”
From Friday, July 15, to Monday, August 1, cashiers at Ron’s No Frills collected donations at the tills to help WHGH purchase the Coagulation Analyzer.
During a similar fundraiser last year, the team at Ron’s No Frills raised more than $5,600 to help the West Haldimand Hospital & Healthcare Foundation (WHHHF) purchase medical equipment for the hospital. In June, Ron’s No Frills generously donated a meat smoker, which hospital volunteers raffled off. It raised an additional $3,000 for WHGH.
