TORONTO — The Carpenters’ Union and the Carpenters’ District Council of Ontario recently helped children and their families by donating $1 million to the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.
“Over the years there has been a strong bond between The Hospital for Sick Children and the Carpenters’ Union,” states a release. “There is deep appreciation for all of the work and support, every day, the medical staff provide for their patients and families.
“This donation is a reminder that the greatest gift this holiday season is to our health, to our immediate present and what we can do today, and to the lives of the future that all childhood represents.”
“SickKids is honoured to have the financial support of Carpenters’ Ontario District and all of its members,” said Ted Garrard, CEO of the SickKids Foundation, in a statement. “And are so grateful to have the Carpenters’ join us in being all-in to build a new SickKids. Carpenters’ are an important partner in bringing our vision one step closer to reality.”
