Sip an SPA to Support Guelph General Hospital
April 30, 2021
Navigating COVID-19 for over a year now, doctors, nurses and support staff at Guelph General Hospital are facing even greater challenges with third-wave cases. Our local emergency departments have also seen an increase in community members needing mental health support and they need more space for this important work.
For the month of May, we'll be raising funds to support Guelph General Hospital Foundation’s Together We Care Campaign to help build an expanded Emergency Department, invest in new patient care equipment and technology, and upgrade the Special Care Nursery.
We are eager to lend a hand. For the entire month of May, we will be donating 25 cents from the purchase of every can of SPA sold online and at our brewery retail store. If you feel compelled to do so, you may also donate through the optional donation button on check-out for online purchases.
Keep your eyes peeled for our weekly social media spotlights featuring Guelph General Health Care workers, kicking it off with Emergency Room Physician Dr. Ed Chung. Dr. Chung wants to thank Welly fans in advance and notes that the disadvantaged have borne the brunt of the second and third waves of the pandemic. The first wave was, of course, tragic for our elderly. Homeless people, people with mental health concerns and essential workers who cannot shelter at home are now the ones being hardest hit. “It has been a stressful time for health care providers and people coming to the ER. People have been scared and lonely. We are hopefully getting closer to the ‘finish line’ but until we get there our hospitals will be overloaded and need all the support we can provide" says Dr. Chung.
Please help us support the tireless efforts of our local hospital workers so that they are better equipped to deal with this third wave. If you'd like to donate directly to the Guelph General Hospital Fund, please head to togetherwecare.ca and thank you for supporting the health of our community.
