Cambridge, ON (December 18, 2015)
Today, the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation ("the Foundation") received a gift from Lone Wolf Real Estate Technologies Inc. ("Lone Wolf"), a Cambridge-based technology company, as it committed to donate a total of $50,000 to the local hospital over the next five years.
The announcement from Lone Wolf, the leader in residential real estate solutions and services in North America, earns them the title of a Caring Business through the Foundation in support of the Cambridge Memorial Hospital Capital Redevelopment Project, TransformationCMH. Lone Wolf joins other Caring Businesses who have each committed to a $50,000 donation in a collective effort to reach the ultimate goal of $5,000,000 from Caring Businesses in support of the project.
The Foundation is seeking 100 Caring Businesses who are each inspired to contribute to TransformationCMH. The Foundation's intent is to work with all Caring Businesses to create an environment that will encourage other businesses in the Region to become leaders in making community health care a priority.
"As an employer with over 200 employees locally, many of whom live, work and play in Cambridge, we are committed to investing in the well-being of the community," says Lorne C. Wallace, CEO of Lone Wolf. "Supporting the Cambridge Memorial Hospital is part of that commitment. Ensuring that healthcare services are available locally is critically important to the quality of life for all of us.”
Lone Wolf's donations as a Caring Business will contribute to the overall $50 million campaign in support of TransformationCMH, the largest campaign in Cambridge history, to build, furnish and equip the new hospital expansion.
"We are most appreciative of Lone Wolf's generosity to our $50 million capital campaign for Cambridge Memorial Hospital. Their investment in healthcare will benefit the entire community and we welcome them as a Caring Business and friend of CMH," says Jennifer White, Executive Director, Cambridge Memorial Hospital Foundation.
"Lone Wolf's staff should be proud of their investment in our community's healthcare. Their contribution ensures our patients will receive exceptional care in the most up-to-date hospital in the Region. Lone Wolf's gift speaks to their leadership and the importance of sharing their success to strengthen Cambridge, North Dumfries and the Region," says Patrick Gaskin, President & CEO, Cambridge Memorial Hospital.
