It’s been three months since the fire at Port Perry Hospital. The Foundation office is now open in a temporary location, at 246 Queen Street, with Ann Florence, our Foundation Officer, holding the fort. We have a different phone number (905-985-4356) but our mailing address is the same, 451 Paxton Street, Port Perry, ON L9L 1L9.
Work goes on at the hospital, with great progress being made on the reconstruction. And for us, it’s time to send out our annual appeal letter, and this year the theme is stars.
Stars symbolize the light that is in people; it may not always be obvious, but it can appear when you least expect it. We continue to be humbled by the contributions of those who put patient safety first the night of the fire, as they are stars in their own right. And there are many stars who have since quietly emerged to help, by making donations, ensuring when the hospital reopens, all the equipment, we were fundraising for before August 25th, can be ordered.
We miss our hospital and we’re all looking forward to the day when we celebrate our grand re-opening together.
In the meantime, on behalf of all of us at Port Perry Hospital Foundation, thank you for your thoughtful support.
