Giving Comfort campaign

Sometimes it’s the littlest things that make the biggest difference. That’s why the volunteers in our network are raising money to provide comfort items, such as blankets, T-shirts, toiletry bags and books in the emergency room. With about 130 families visiting the Stollery’s emergency  every day – often in distress and unprepared – our Giving Comfort campaign donors will provide some of the comforts of home at the Hospital when it’s needed most.

We’re already one-third of the way to our goal, having raised just over $130,000 of our $400,000 fundraising target. Our campaign runs until March 31, 2018 so now’s the time to get involved and make a difference for families in your community.
