John Hunter Children’s Hospital (also known at HNE Kids Health) is a specialised tertiary paediatric hospital that provides complex medical, surgical, major trauma and neonatal care services. Over the course of a year, JHCH will see 20,000 children and young people present to the emergency department with 9,000 of those being admitted to hospital and perform 30,000 occasions of service through outpatient clinics.
Each year Toronto Workers Club Group presents “The Gift of Giving” to the John Hunter Children’s Hospital with our Annual Giving Tree. The tree is erected November and decorated with gift tags. Each tag is dedicated to a boy or girl of an age category.
Members and Guests are welcome to collect a tag, or as many tags as they like and purchase a gift for a child or young person that may be spending Christmas in hospital. With over 9,000 yearly admissions, creating smiles and joy at Christmas for young people is definitely at the top of our to-do list.
Cash donations are also welcome if you prefer. All donations over $2 are fully tax deductible and JHCH will provide receipts.
We’re hoping to put a smile of love and joy on every child’s face this year, that will be in hospital during Santa’s visit. If you’d like to participate please head to the Workers Club and collect a tag from the tree. Gifts have already started to accumulate and we look forward to seeing many more.
If you’d like to know more about the John Hunter Children’s Hospital and the work they do for all young people, check out their website which outlines their services, wards, fun, clinics and a map.
The Toronto Workers Club Group will always support the community and will continue to do so, especially when we can make someone smile, even if it is just for a short time.
Merry “Gift of Giving” Christmas
