Dear Friends and Supporters,
As our community negotiates the unprecedented changes in our lives, the outpouring of support to our healthcare professionals and other essential workers has been overwhelming. From the 7 o’clock cheer, to the food and coffee brought to the staff at our hospital and the monetary donations made to support the highest level of care, our community has stepped up. The Squamish Hospital Foundation has been working alongside the staff at Squamish General Hospital to best prepare our community for the potential influx of patients requiring care because of Covid-19, coordinating the food donations, identifying potential equipment needs for the hospital and being the conduit to the community for donations of all kinds.
I want to express my deepest gratitude to you for your continued support of the work of the Squamish Hospital Foundation. The donations that have been made are directly impacting the care that is provided at the Hospital during this crisis, but we are also looking beyond this pandemic to ensure that our community receives the highest quality of care while keeping our healthcare workers safe.
From the smallest of donations to the largest, your contributions are helping our healthcare workers. I would like to recognize 100 Women Who Care (Squamish), the Rotary Club of Squamish and the Squamish General Hospital Auxiliary for their quick support of this work, Bob Fast and family for their very significant contribution, and Jaime Morum for her assistance in coordinating with donors and the Foundation.
Your contributions to the Foundation will ensure that our dedicated health care team at Squamish General Hospital has the resources they need to provide the very best care possible at this time. The needs of our Hospital are evolving and the Foundation will continue to support our frontline health care workers in every way we can. For more information and ways you can help, please visit www.SquamishHospital.com.
Finally, I would like to extend my thanks on behalf of the Foundation to all of the front-line health care workers, support workers in our healthcare facilities, grocers, delivery drivers, emergency response workers and all those who are working to keep our communities moving.
Again, we encourage you to take every measure to stay healthy. Thank you for supporting the Squamish Hospital Foundation and those on the front lines in this pandemic.
Squamish Hospital Foundation President

Help me Fight Covid and support our Squamish Health Care Community!
Thank you to all of you for doing your part by staying home and social distancing!
I know many of you feel similarly to myself and you want to do more! Some of you may be front line workers deemed as essential at this time or have family members and friends battling this Pandemic. My hope is that we can come together as a community and help raise funds to help provide the tools our hospital staff needs to stay safe and fight this pandemic.
The funds raised here will go directly towards safety equipment for our front line health care staff to keep themselves and their patients safe. As well as other supplies they may deem as necessary to provide the best care possible to our community.
My “Dream BIG” hope is that we may be able to raise enough money to buy another ventilator for our hospital. This itself would cost us north of 50 Thousand Dollars conservatively. Right now Squamish hospital has only 4 ventilators and 1 transport ventilator. In the event that other hospitals will be operating at full capacity, members of our community may need to stay here for an extended period of time.
I hope that you will rally to support this very worthy and relevant cause ❤️
Please follow the link below to donate (and remember to write “Fight Covid” in the message box) .
If you are able, I ask that you rally your friends, family, neighbours, coworkers and business contacts to make donations! (Tax receipts will be issued for donations over $20) Together we can make a huge impact!
With love, health and respect!
