The Giving Tree

The Giving Tree

This is a Spiritual and Religious Care Dept. initiative on behalf of SJHC, encouraging anyone involved with the organization to give to our community at this time of year.

This year we will be able to give in two different ways:

1. The Giving Tree will be in the Town Square/Lobby as of Thursday November 25th and will once again, be prepared with tags that you may take to purchase the chosen item(s) and return to the boxes under the tree. The Deadline to bring in your item is Thursday, December 16th at noon, at which time we will deliver to the two charities. This deadline will give the charities plenty of time to sort and give to the appropriate individuals and families before Christmas.

2. This Virtual Giving Tree on our website. You will be able to give a financial donation – designating which site you want the donation to go to: SJV, CCC or VSGV. The money gathered at each site will then be given to one of our designees to assist them in providing Christmas for those in need. The money gathered for each organization will go to the designees as described below.

Jim Oman was the 2021 Make a Wish winner of St. Joseph’s Villa. He was nominated by the staff on his floor to have his wish of going for one more ride in a motorcycle come true. Community volunteer Pat Severin heard about Jim’s wish through social media and readily offered to take Jim out for a spin.

As part of the wish he visited the Harley Davidson Shop to prepare for his big day where he was spoiled. On the day of his ride the Freedom Riders Motorcycle Association of Northern Ontario, Inc. (Sudbury) as well as Sudbury Bike Nights joined in with Jim, Pat and members of the GSPS Traffic Management Unit for a ride through Sudbury. They finished their ride at A&W, where A&W owners Suzanne and Paul Gaudreault treated everyone to a cold root beer and a special treat for Jim.

The staff of St. Joseph’s Villa, as well as Jim himself were humbled by the enormous support the community of Sudbury offered to make these two days extra special for Jim.

Ride Hard, Live Free Jim!
