A partnership between St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation and McDonald’s Estevan has been announced.
The restaurant has committed to donating a portion of sales from their McCafé coffee to the foundation to assist with the funding of new equipment for St. Joseph’s Hospital. The commitment will last an entire year, and is expected to raise up to $20,000 for the charity.
This new commitment will play a huge role in the success of St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation as the affects of COVID-19 have come into effect as of late.
“This new partnership is so exciting for us! McDonald’s Estevan has been a great supporter at all our events this past year, so we are very excited to work with them more and in turn raise funds for our hospital,” said Breanne Van de Woestyne, executive director of the St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation. “We are very grateful for their support, especially at times like these.”
McDonald’s Estevan is pleased to partner with the foundation and support local healthcare.
“We are pleased to support St Joseph’s Hospital Foundation in their effort to purchase much-needed equipment for the hospital. It gives us an opportunity to give back to the citizens of Estevan and surrounding communities,” said Tim Jenish, co-owner of the Estevan McDonald’s franchise.
This past year alone, St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation has funded over $400,000 worth of new equipment and services at the hospital.
