SAVE THE DATE notice (more details to come as we get closer):
AGAIN, our Christmas Dinner Party will be supporting Marjorie and her Kids — some of Southlake Hospital's smallest patients!
Marjorie Brewster routinely puts a smile on the faces of the children who visit Ontario's Southlake Regional Health Centre. This dear angel makes their hospital visits a little more tolerable; these kids are receiving chemo-treatments, blood transfusions and more and more testing, so when Marjorie can be there to lift their spirits and make a hard day a whole lot easier, well, that's something pretty special.
The 88-year-old has been volunteering there for almost 30 years, four days a week, helping sick children. That includes buying them toys.
Marjorie spends $80 each week out of her own pocket buying presents for children that visit the hospital, in an effort to distract them from their sometimes life-threatening illnesses.
«The minute they see me, they know they're going to get toys,» she says. «They're not thinking of what's got to be done, it's, 'I wonder what Marjorie's got?'»
Marjorie loves «her kids», and we are proud to help her spread that love when we as a group raise money to do just that every Christmas! Last year, our Christmas party raised over $1.3 K to help Marjorie to her special work, thanks to YOUR GENEROUSITY. It is very touching to see divers «jump in» and help in this cause, and we all know how very grateful Marjorie is, as she is such a modest and kind soul. THANK-YOU, Marjorie...we are so grateful for you in our community. THANK-YOU.
