On Friday, July 21, The Nottawasaga Foundation presented a cheque for $2,944.00 to the Morrison family.
The Morrisons’ seven-year-old daughter Shannon was born with multiple health challenges that requires her to use a wheelchair almost daily for her endurance problems and safety when out in crowds. This donation from the Foundation will be used to purchase a new wheelchair for Shannon who has outgrown the existing one that she has been using since the age of two and a half.
The Nottawasaga Foundation, formed in 2001, was established as a public foundation to carry on the spirit of the Nottawasaga Resort’s previous years’ highly successful Stevenson Memorial Hospital fundraisers. The main objective of the Foundation was to expand the scope of funding to include local charities that provide invaluable service to our community.
The charities that have benefitted include The Stevenson Memorial Hospital, Sir Frederick Banting Homestead, Children’s Aid Society, Community Living Association of South Simcoe, South Simcoe Arts Council, Local Food Banks (Alliston, Angus and Tottenham), Matthews House Hospice, Banting High School Scholarship & Breakfast Club, Simcoe County Museum, Alliston Legion Memorial Cenotaph, Multiple Sclerosis Society, Conservation Ontario, The Learning Centre Breakfast Program, Town of New Tecumseth Sledge Hockey Program, Alliston & District Humane Society and many other Simcoe County charities of community significance.
