Community rallying to support Burnaby Hospital

Community rallying to support Burnaby Hospital

March 23, 2020

Over the past week the Foundation team has been truly humbled by the incredibly enthusiastic support that our community has shown in helping battle the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In only a few days, our community has raised over $160,000 worth of cash and in-kind donations. The Foundation’s Chinese Ambassador Society (CAS) has played a very influential role in assisting and advocating for our hospital during this time. 

Alexander College has generously donated $60,000 worth of medical supplies, in addition to a $60,000 cash donation to purchase a new ventilator for our hospital.

Canada Youth Sports Alliance has donated 5,000 CE certified medical masks to ensure the safety of staff while they work round the clock to ensure our community receives the best care possible. 

Members of the community to date have also approximately $40,000 and counting, contributing to the purchases of urgently needed ventilators.

We are blown away by the strength displayed during these uncertain times.  Thank you to every business, organization and community member who has come together to support your community hospital. It is with your dedication that we can help pave the way for a brighter future.
