You Can Bring Joy and Comfort to People in Hospital

Throughout Christmas, we are lucky enough to be able to count our blessings. But this time of year is also a time to reflect on those who can’t be home for the holidays because they require specialized care.

Your gift to Season of Celebration will bring comfort and joy to patients and residents by purchasing care and comfort items that help make hospital feel more like home. 

Give a Gift. Brighten a Life.

The Season of Celebration campaign began in 1990 with a single question from staff, “How can we make the Christmas season a little brighter for those in our care?” 

Now you have an opportunity to brighten those lives. With your donation we are able to do things like enhance recreational space at Mount Hope Centre for Long Term Care, which gives residents an opportunity to take part in a favourite solo or group activity. 

Gifts will also help purchase pressure-reducing mattresses, ceiling lifts, and motorized sit-to-stand recliners that ensure Veterans at Parkwood Institute have security and independence.

Not only can you improve the care that patients and residents receive across St. Joseph’s, but with your gift the pink Lights of Caring will shine bright reminding those in hospital that they are not forgotten at this time of year.
