Giving back to the Hotel Dieu Shaver Foundation was the focus of a donation presentation by the sponsors and volunteers from the Niagara Health Expo on December 11th. In supporting the Hotel Dieu Shaver, event partners from the Niagara Health Expo visited the hospital for the presentation of a $2,320 cheque. Proceeds from the 5th annual community event held on October 21, 2018 will go towards purchasing patient care equipment at the Hotel Dieu Shaver Health and Rehabilitation Centre located on Glenridge Avenue in St. Catharines.
The free community event is made possible thanks to the generous support from presenting sponsor Niagara Prosthetics and Orthotics, premium sponsor Henderson’s Pharmacy and event sponsor Gluckstein Lawyers.

The donation also included monies collected from a silent auction offered by event partners at the Expo hosted by Hotel Dieu Shaver in the therapy centre.
By making the donation, the Niagara Health Expo is contributing to the many initiatives in the community working to help the Hotel Dieu Shaver purchase patient care equipment that is essential to provide comfort, care and hope to patients and their loved ones going through the doors of the hospital.
