Week nine’s recipient the $10,000 Ironstone Impact donation was determined by a staff vote and Children’s Hospital was selected as the winner. 
“We are truly grateful to Ironstone for choosing to stand by our kids at Children’s Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre, in their 9th week of giving back,” says Scott Fortnum, President and CEO of Children’s Health Foundation. “Their gift will help provide a lifeline to families who are struggling financially while in hospital, bringing hope and relief when it’s needed most.”
The donation will help fund the Family Assistance Program. Entirely donor funded, the Family Assistance Program helps families to worry less about money and instead, focus on what matters most: caring for their sick child. This support is particularly needed right now because of the impacts of COVID-19. The program provides financial resources for the coverage of in-hospital meals, groceries, parking, travel, medication, accommodation, internet access and more.
“I’m proud of our team and their decision to donate $10,000 to Children’s Hospital,” says Dave Stimac, Ironstone President & Co-founder. “Some of our team members have been personally touched by the amazing work done at Children’s Hospital and it’s very special that we have the opportunity to give back to this important local organization.” 
Week 10 of Ironstone Impact will be determined by a public vote. Click here to submit your vote today!
