(Hamilton, ON) - The Paletta family and Jennifer Laughton, VP Development, McMaster Children's Hospital thank the community for your support in our holiday toy drive
When hospitals come to mind we often think of saddness, dread, and stress. However, Jennifer Laughton assures us that McMaster Children's Hospital is one of the happiness places around. It's filled with hope, faith, happiness and support from the families that are going through similar experiences.
The 1,000,000 square feet facilities is home to some of the greatest medical minds, innovation, and procedure techniques. It is also the busiest pediatric hospital in the area, just second to SickKid. It houses 165 medical beds and approximately 50,000 emergency visit annually providing care from newborns up to age 18! Although, these numbers may sound daunting, the hospital is highly specialized making McMaster Children's Hospital the primary provider of tertiary health care services for children in Hamilton and the surrounding region. To learn more about the history, facts and figures of this amazing institution click here.
There are so many great things happening within the walls of the hospitals but the real brave souls are the ones lying in the beds. Many patients will not be able to go home to their families or enjoy family dinners because they are undergoing various treatments. But, that does not mean they have to miss out on the spirit of Christmas! Santa will still be making a stop at McMaster Children's Hospital with all his toys.
This year Car Nation Canada delivered a truckload of toys to the hospital. These toys will be sorted and delivered to the children and their siblings on Christmas Eve in time for Christmas morning. When the children wake up, they will be surprised with gifts under their beds! We would like to thank the community for the toys which will help make the healing process for these children a little bit easier. As we learned, these are not toys of play but to the children they are a part of the their healing experience.

The team here at Unique Chrysler want to thank everyone at the Burlington Fire Department for their commitment, dedication, and efforts to keeping us and our families sound and secure.With turkeys in tow, some of the staff at Unique Chrysler headed down to the fire department to donate to the service men for their communal dinner. The Burlington Fire Department has been collecting for the Burlington Food Bank for the past few months. Instead of taking the turkeys for the fire department, the men and women will be donating the turkeys to the Burlington Food Bank.

Car Nation Canada Donates $5,000 Towards McMaster University For Breast Cancer Research
(Juravinksi Hospital - Hamilton, ON) Donation efforts will go towards innovative breast cancer research at McMaster University with Dr. Mark Levine
Breast cancer is a harrowing illness that is all too familiar. We either know someone going through the illness, been diagnosed, know a survivor or have conquered it ourselves. Whatever, the case may be, it's an illness that impacts thousands of lives. In 2016, 25,700 women were diagnosed with breast cancer. While these numbers seem gloom, what we can rejoice about is the innovative research that happens in our city.
Hamilton is the hub for breakthrough health science research with academic institutions such as McMaster University, teaching and research hospitals under the Hamilton Health Sciences umbrella. In every institution, there is a superstar worth mentioning.
At McMaster, Dr. Mark Levine is seen by his patients and students as a superhero. You can find him running to labs picking up his patients' test instead of the usual lab runner. When he is not taking care of his patients, he spends a majority of his time as an active clinical trials investigator in the areas of breast cancer research and has performed research in quality of life, and breast-cancer decision making. He strongly believes in teaching and shaping young minds that come in and out of classrooms to champion the future of medicine and healthcare.
Car Nation Canada is extremely proud to be able to donate funds for the Buffett Taylor Research Chair in Breast Cancer Research in which Dr. Levine is a part of. It is wonderful and a true blessing to be able to support an incredible and progressive institution in our local community. To learn more about Dr. Levine's research, click here.
Remember, this holiday season you don't have to look very
far to be grateful for what we have! Thank you to our customers who help us support our charitable efforts that impact the community around us!
