Oakville Hospital Receives $1 Million from Volunteers


Earlier this summer, the Oakville Hospital Volunteer Association (OHVA) presented the Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital with a cheque for $1,030,000.

The cheque was presented at the association's Annual General Meeting on June 18, 2019.

The cheque, according to a press release, marks the single largest donation in the association's history. The money was raised in several different ways.

"In addition to their invaluable hours of service the volunteer association raises funds through revenue generated from the gift shop, vendor sales, 50/50 draws, events and donations," Carole Moore, Chief Operating Officer at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, said in a statement. "Their long history of giving and dedicated service has truly made a difference in the quality of care our hospital provides."

However, the cheque was not the only highlight of the meeting back in June.

During the meeting, the accomplishments that volunteers achieved over the past year, along with the volunteer's years of service were also celebrated. Three volunteers specifically were recognized for their commitment to the hospital having volunteered for the past 40, 45, and 50 years.

"We are very fortunate to have such caring, compassionate and committed volunteers," Moore said. "Thank you to all of our volunteers for helping us transform the community hospital experience and provide exemplary patient experiences, always."
