With the assistance of dedicated volunteers, we are able to plan and run many fundraising campaigns and events, as well as build bridges throughout the business community and with individual donors.

Volunteers are an essential part of the Centre’s focus to create an atmosphere where patients and residents can live with dignity in a home-like environment. Thanks to the major role that volunteers play, the citizens of Manitoba enjoy a health–care centre that is second to none.

Those interested in finding out more about becoming a Foundation volunteer should phone Sheldon Mindell at 478-6197.
