Once again this year, Christmas shoppers can help support McMaster Children’s Hospital while picking up Christmas cheer in Bay Area LCBO stores. Donation boxes for McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation will be displayed at LCBO checkout counters until December 31, 2015. As part of LCBO’s annual Giving Back In Our Community campaign, customer service representatives will also invite customers to add a $2, $5 or $10 donation to their purchase.
LCBO’s Giving Back In Our Community fundraising campaign raises funds for Ontario’s four regional children’s hospitals across Ontario and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD Canada).
A portion of the funds raised for McMaster Children’s Hospital support a Teenage Alcohol Use Awareness Program.
Last year’s campaign raised nearly $425,000 for McMaster Children’s Hospital Foundation, a significant increase from the previous year. Province-wide the campaign raised $4.79 million.
