LHSC's 2016 Holiday Boot and Mitten Campaign demonstrates care for our community beyond the hospital's walls

December 1, 2016

London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) is proud of the role we play in our community throughout the year as staff, physicians, students and volunteers often extend the care and compassion we provide beyond the hospital’s walls.

This holiday season, as part of the organization’s 2016 Holiday Boot & Mitten Campaign, LHSC staff generously donated over 1,000 items including boots, gloves, mittens, hats and scarves, along with snow pants and winter coats in support of the United Way’s “Give Cold Feet the Boot” campaign, which will distribute the items to neighbourhood resource centres across the city.
