Volunteers have been an integral part of Hotel Dieu and our community for more than 100 years! They make a significant contribution to the hospital, both in terms of time and talents given and monetary donations. At this week’s annual board meeting, the Volunteers to Hotel Dieu presented a cheque in the amount of $10,000 to KidsInclusive! Some of these funds are used to assist families with the purchase or lease of special equipment.
Ben who is 4 years old (turning 5 on Christmas Eve by the way!) uses an iPad with an App called Proloquo2Go to help him communicate. Thanks to help from the Volunteer Fund, Ben’s family was able to purchase this device for him. At board meeting, Ben was able to communicate some info about himself, his family, and say thank you to the Volunteers himself!
