St. Joseph’s Foundation of Sudbury Launches its 50/50 Campaign for Compassionate Care

50 50 Draw Logo

We are excited to announce the launch of our 50/50 DRAW. This is a great opportunity for YOU to support our compassionate care at St. Joseph’s! This is the one 50/50 Draw in YOUR community dedicated to rehabilitative and restorative care for local citizens when they are most vulnerable!

St. Joseph’s Sudbury has been providing compassionate and caring services to YOUR community for 18 years. Traditional government funding goes entirely to cover basic costs for resident and patient care but does not provide additional dollars for new equipment, upgrades and maintenance.  With the launch of our 50/50 draw we look forward to the opportunity to make the improvements over time that will make our resident and patient stays that much more safe, comfortable and in the case of our rehabilitation patients, rewarding.

COVID-19 has taught us much and has added greater urgency for the need to ensure we upgrade our facility to the highest standards.  The pandemic has resulted in unexpected costs for staffing, agency staffing and PPE.  Moving forward, we have all learned the importance of being prepared for all eventualities.

That’s why YOUR support for our 50/50 Draw is so needed and so appreciated!

YOU can buy YOUR tickets via our secure portal at stjoessudbury5050.ca

Thank you from the entire St. Joseph’s family!
