You can help Grand River Kids by making a donation to the firefighter's Everyday Heroes campaign. Money raised will help buy much needed electronics for kids and critical care equipment for Grand River Kids!
The Kitchener Fire Fighter's Association, Centre in the Square and Kitchener Knights of Columbus teamed up a few years ago to provide toys and electronic equipment for kids staying at the hospital during the Christmas Holidays. Toys and electronic devices help kids stay connected and have a little bit of fun.
But the story doesn't end there.
Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit needed new CPAP machines (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure), which provides life-saving breathing for preemie babies. So Centre in the Square called the firefighters and Knights to help collect loose change and donations from concert patrons and fill up 'Boots' and 'Helmets'.
During 10 concert events in 2019, they were able to raise the $25,000 needed to buy a new CPAP machine, which arrived earlier this year, smack in the middle of the pandemic.
