The Give a Little, Help a Lot campaign at Patrice’s Your Independent Grocer ran from July 9 to Aug. 8 this year and the results show that this community values quality health care close to home. As customers checked out, the 56 YIG cashiers asked if they’d like to support the Hospital. The campaign raised $5,421!!

“It amazes me how generous our community is when we run our Give a Little, Help a Lot campaign”, said store owner Guido Patrice. “This is especially evident when we are raising funds for an organization like our Almonte General Hospital and Fairview Manor. Tanya and I are very proud of our community with the outpouring of care and support during these challenging times. Almonte truly is “The Friendly Town”.

Funds raised through this campaign will help fund replacement or new equipment at the Hospital and Manor including the CT scan.
