As we begin to plan our holiday festivities, we are reminded that many Ontario Shores patients are unable to leave the hospital to celebrate with family or friends. If you, your family or friends, your business, workplace, or sports team are looking for a meaningful way to give back to someone in need this holiday season, consider becoming a Holiday Hope Hero.
To brighten the season, our volunteer team is gathering gift bags filled with simple yet important gender-neutral items such as socks, hats, instant coffee, mittens or gloves, journals, candy or chocolate, art supplies, playing cards, games, and puzzles to give to patients.
Our goal is to provide a gift bag to every patient, so if you’re interested, please confirm your participation by November 20 and plan to return the gift bags to the hospital on or before December 13.
Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences is a public teaching hospital providing a range of specialized assessment and treatment services to those living with complex and serious mental illness. Patients at Ontario Shores benefit from a recovery-oriented environment of care built on compassion, inspiration, and hope.
