2020 Paddle for Almonte General Hospital Is Cancelled
2020 Fundraising Summer Paddle Cancelled
The AGH-FVM Paddle for Almonte General Hospital committee had to make the difficult decision to cancel this year’s paddle. The importance of keeping everyone safe and not knowing when things would begin to open up were two of the deciding factors.
Each and every year, we are floored by the generosity of this compassionate and giving community. Many of you have asked “How can I help?”, so here is our ask:
While we may not be able to paddle, we hope you will consider making a donation to the Foundation. We are trying to ensure the hospital can replace 28 of the IV pumps in the hospital. Approximately 80% of the patients admitted to the hospital will make use of an IV pump for medication delivery, hydration and sometimes blood products. Given this unprecedented time, ensuring our hospital and manor are well resourced has never been more important. Every dollar counts.
