Door-to-door fundraising is a vital component of the Foundation’s efforts to enhance patient care at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital and to help equip the new Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital. Through this program, we’re asking you and your neighbours in Richmond Hill and Vaughan to join Mackenzie Health Foundation’s Partners in Care Monthly Giving Program. As a caring partner, your gift supports the purchase of much-needed equipment throughout Mackenzie Health and brings the ultimate in care close to home for you, your family, friends and community.
