The Lindsay Post - - COMMENT -

St. John Am­bu­lance, Kawartha branch held its’ an­nual “Band- Aid Day” fundraiser at var­i­ous lo­ca­tions in Lind­say on May 31 and June 1, in Fenelon Falls on May 30, 31 and June 1 and in Lit­tle Bri­tain on June 1.

St. John Am­bu­lance vol­un­teers and staff would like to say thank you to the com­mu­nity for its gen­er­ous sup­port. This year we raised more than $1,500. This fundraiser helps St. John Am­bu­lance to raise aware­ness of our or­ga­ni­za­tion and the ser­vices we pro­vide to the com­mu­nity. The monies raised help to sup­port our pro­grams.

The com­mu­nity ser­vice unit vol­un­teers pro­vide first aid ser­vices at pub­lic events such as fairs, sport­ing events, and pa­rades. Ther­apy dog vol­un­teers visit the sick and the el­derly in hos­pi­tals and re­tire­ment fa­cil­i­ties and chil­dren are en­cour­aged to read with the Read to the Dog pro­gram at lo­cal li­braries. St. John Am­bu­lance, Kawartha branch also pro­vides reg­u­larly sched­uled first aid and CPR train­ing to mem­bers of the pub­lic and busi­nesses with times avail­able to ac­com­mo­date your sched­ule.
