Bucks for Bandages

Bucks for Bandages

Georgian Bay General Hospital (GBGH) summer student, Matthew Duquette, was shocked to learn hospital equipment is funded solely through community efforts and donors. He decided he needed to do his part to help, so he partnered with the Georgian Bay General Hospital Foundation.

Matthew is currently working in the hospital’s Human Resources department and working towards a career in medicine. Early in his employment with GBGH, Matthew learned about the fundraising the GBGH Foundation and Volunteer Association do for the hospital and wanted to contribute as well.

Named Bucks for Bandages, the campaign is raising money to help purchase hospital equipment. The initiative is currently underway and Matthew has enlisted the support of local businesses to help. Donation boxes can be found throughout the summer at W&Y Boutique, Barber & Haskill and the local Wal-Mart Pharmacy.

“The fundraiser has already seen significant success,” says Matthew. “My hope is to see the project grow and continue forward throughout the year. It’s important our community understands how important their help is in funding new medical equipment to service our patients and improve the care the hospital offers.”

Keep an eye out for the donation boxes in your local businesses and we appreciate your support.
