The Saint-Eustache Hospital Center Volunteers Association donated $ 25,000 to the Fondation Hôpital Saint-Eustache (FHSE), despite the pandemic. This amount will contribute to the 2020 FHSE campaign aimed at improving the health care and services offered by the hospital, in addition to enabling the implementation of innovative projects in the Laurentians region.
The money raised comes mainly from the profits of the gift shop La douce pensée located at the entrance of the Saint-Eustache Hospital. Run exclusively by a team of volunteers, the store has had to temporarily close its doors since March 16 due to the pandemic. In addition, the many fundraising activities planned during the year by the Association could not take place. Until the non-profit organization resumes its fundraising activities, its volunteers intend to continue their efforts by getting involved in a different way, to maximize the donations made annually to the Foundation. The Laurentian Integrated Health and Social Services Center saluted the Saint-Eustache Hospital Center Volunteer Association for its generous contribution which makes a real difference.
