Hospi­tal Foun­da­tion was launched in the pres­ence of a few of the may­ors of the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties in the MRC who have con­firmed their com­mit­ment to the cam­paign: Ayer’s Cliff, Bolton East, East­man, Hat­ley, Hat­ley Town­ship, Ma­gog, Or­ford, St. Benoit du Lac, Ste-Eti­enne de Bolton and Ste-Cather­ine de Hat­ley. Each of these mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties has agreed to do­nate $2 per ci­ti­zen to the cam­paign, bring­ing the cam­paign’s to­tal to date up to over $400,000, very close to the cam­paign’s ob­jec­tive of $500,000. Ma­gog alone will hand over a cheque of $257,000.

The pre­vi­ous two cam­paigns net­ted $130,000, in 2010, and $86,400, in 2011; money that was col­lected through door-todoor so­lic­it­ing and let­ters sent. The money raised in this cam­paign will be used for the treat­ment of can­cer pa­tients.
