A North American construction company and its employees just donated $10,160 to Richmond Hospital Foundation.
The funds were raised through Ledcor Group's annual Employee Giving Campaign, where pledges and fundraising activities by employees were matched dollar-for-dollar by Ledcor.
Ledcor has actively supported Richmond Hospital Foundation since 2013 as a sponsor for the annual golf tournament, and its latest donation will go towards funding new state-of-the-art medical imaging technologies for the Richmond Hospital.
“Our Ledcor Cares spirit is engrained in our company culture,” said Farran Hobbs, Ledcor Technical Services spokesperson.
“We have a strong desire to assist others in need and help move our communities forward by coming together for organizations like Richmond Hospital Foundation.”
Richmond Hospital Foundation is aiming to raise $20 million to equip Richmond Hospital's upcoming Milan & Maureen Ilich Medical Imaging Centre with the latest technologies. The campaign has reached 80 per cent of its fundraising goal so far. To find out more and to donate, visit Richmond Hospital Foundation's campaign page.
“We are so grateful for the generous contribution from Ledcor and their employees to help fund excellence and innovative technologies in the future medical imaging centre,” said Natalie Meixner, president and CEO of Richmond Hospital Foundation.
“Medical imaging is fundamental for physicians and surgeons and is vital in ensuring the best patient care.”
