Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Raises $2,500 for Canadian Red Cross Fort McMurray Fire Relief

CHATHAM-KENT: May 31, 2016 – Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (CKHA) rose to the challenge of helping out fellow Canadians in need by holding a hospital-wide fundraiser for residents in the region of Fort McMurray, Alberta, who have been under a mandatory evacuation due to rampant wildfires.
Roseanne Faubert, Patient Registration Clerk, proposed the idea of bringing together CKHA’s team to raise funds for the Canadian Red Cross relief campaign for Fort McMurray. After partnering with the Nutrition Services department, plans for a spaghetti lunch fundraiser at the Chatham Campus were put into action. On May 19, for a donation of $10 staff, physicians and volunteers were treated to a lunch of spaghetti paired with caesar salad. The event was well-attended, raising $2,540 from the lunch sales. Through vendor support, 100 per cent of the proceeds were donated to the Canadian Red Cross Alberta Fires Appeal.

 “Roseanne, the Nutrition Services team, and those involved in coordinating this effort exemplify CKHA’s values of respect, teamwork, compassion, trust, knowledge and accountability,” said Colin Patey, President & CEO. “The success of the Fort McMurray fundraiser demonstrates the compassion of not only this dedicated team but the entire CKHA family.”
The Red Cross provides relief for those affected in the form of emergency food, clothing, shelter, personal services, and other necessities to help assist with recovery and resiliency. To donate to the Canadian Red Cross Alberta Fires Appeal, click here
