Message from the President & The SJHH United Way Committee 

Last year, many of us at St. Joe’s stepped up to show our local love for our community by donating to our local United Way.  I want to offer my personal thanks to those of you who have contributed over the years. Your contributions have shown how much you care about our neighbours and families in most need. THANK YOU.

There is more work to be done.

We are asking you to come together with your colleagues and peers by supporting our 2021 St. Joe’s United Way campaign.  By signing up for a payroll deduction or a one-time donation, you can lend a hand to the most vulnerable members of our local community. Signing up is easy. Just ‘Point and Click’ on the link below.  Just watch our video to learn more. Our goal this year is $25,000! 

We know that COVID19 continues to disproportionately impact the most vulnerable people in our community. I’m constantly impressed at the impact our care and compassion has well beyond our hospital walls – particularly over this last year and a half. However, this work cannot be done alone. By supporting hundreds of local agencies and programs used by our patients and neighbours, the United Way Halton and Hamilton exists to create a measurable improvement on priority social issues in our community by focusing by moving people from poverty to possibility, creating healthy communities and helping kids be all they can be. To learn more about the United Way’s work here in Hamilton, click here. Your support makes a huge difference. 

Thank you,

Melissa Farrell, President & the SJHH United Way Committee
