Healthcare workers are superheroes, there’s no question about it.
While Canadians are being strongly encouraged to stay home and enforce social distancing, our courageous St. Joe’s staff come to work every day, prepared to do battle on the front lines and behind the scenes, to protect our community from the COVID-19 virus.
You can support their courageous fight with a gift to our COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund. Your gift will help St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton to purchase much needed supplies and equipment and to fund COVID-19 related research. Now more than ever, we need to arm our Hospitals with the tools they need to continue caring for our community.
COVID-19 is placing unprecedented strains on our Hospital, and we are committed to supporting St. Joe’s by raising funds to support four critical areas identified as their pillars of highest need.
They include: providing funds for critical and emergency care needs, enhancing infection control, acquiring portable equipment to prevent transmission of the virus, and supporting initiatives that bring compassion and comfort to the patients we serve during a time when visits are not permitted. We are also supporting COVID-19 related research at the Hospital.
Your donation can help us to meet the needs of our Hospital and those of the patients for whom we care.
From virtual dance-a-thons, to CO-video Game Marathons, or running the Around the Bay Road Race in your own home, there’s no shortage of creative ways that our community can host their own fundraising event to support St. Joe’s.
We’ve developed a customizable, personal fundraising page where you can upload photos, write a summary about your initiative or event, and even create a secure donation link that you can send via email to friends, family and supporters so they can give online and receive an automatic tax receipt.

Our hospital is going through more supplies than usual due to the ever-increasing demand for COVID-19 testing and care, and we need to purchase additional equipment to increase our capacity so that we can admit the most severely impacted patients to our COVID-19 unit at the Charlton Campus where they have the very best chance of recovery.
If you’d like a different way to help our Hospital, St. Joe’s needs your help to continue caring for our community during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our Hospital is in need of medical, surgical and procedural masks. While model numbers of the N95 masks in the 1860, 1860s, 1870+, 8110s and 8210 are preferred, we are accepting all masks. We’re also in need of impervious gowns and face shields and new or gently used baby monitors. If you’re able to donate any of these materials, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
