CHUS launches in­ter­nal cam­paign

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Last Fri­day, the CHUS Foun­da­tion launched an in­ter­nal fi­nanc­ing cam­paign among its 6000 em­ploy­ees. Called “Pour nous, pour moi aussi!” the cam­paign’s main ob­jec­tive is to en­cour­age all the CHUS per­son­nel to do­nate and aims to raise one mil­lion dol­lars within five years.

Co­me­dian Bernard Fortin, the honorary god­fa­ther of the Foun­da­tion, was at the launch and shared CHUS anec­dotes with the per­son­nel. His fa­ther was one of the es­tab­lish­ment’s first doc­tors, in the late 1960’s, and it is at the CHUS where his close rel­a­tives re­ceive health care.

The names of em­ployee donors were put up on a wall in one of the hospi­tal’s cafe­te­rias and, each month, new donor names will be added.

Dur­ing last week’s launch of an in­ter­nal fundraiser at the CHUS were (l. to r.) Jo­hanne Si­mard, em­ployee rep­re­sen­ta­tive; Me Dany Lachance, Foun­da­tion board pres­i­dent; honorary god­fa­ther, co­me­dian Bernard Fortin; and CHUS di­rec­tor Pa­tri­cia Gau­thier.
