A bouquet for the volunteers

Volunteers are crucial to the work of the Heart and Stroke Foundation in Newfoundland and Labrador.

They organize community fundraisers, serve on our board of directors and planning committees and assist staff with day-to-day office duties.

Without their support, it would be impossible for our organization to continue our vital work toward reducing the incidence of heart disease and stroke in the province.

Clearly, residents of Newfoundland and Labrador have big hearts, and none more so than the many volunteers who assisted us during our annual Stroke Month door-to-door campaign in June.

Setting aside their busy personal lives for a few hours, hundreds of these committed women and men knocked on doors in their neighbourhoods, collecting donations from friends and neighbours to help make health last.

A tip of the hat and a sincere thank-you to each and every volunteer who helped us raise essential funds, either by helping to organize this campaign or to canvass.

Thank you as well to all those who answered the knock at their door and gave so generously.

On behalf of local residents with heart disease and stroke and those at risk, we extend to you our gratitude along with our assurances that your efforts have helped to make a difference in the lives of those around you.

Thank you for helping the foundation to realize our vision of healthy lives free of heart disease and stroke. Together we will make it happen.

    Thank you W. Bagg for your inquiry. Donations given to door to door canvassers are used for a wide array of purposes - awareness campaigns, heart/stroke research and specific projects such as our highly successful defibulator initiative wherein we are placing these life saving devices in many public locations throughout our Province. Our Board are all volunteers and Ms. Butt has a small staff of hard working individuals who are dedicated to addressing the problem of heart and stroke disease in our Province. Sincerely Brian McNamara Chairman

    Did any of those donations solicited by volunteers go to salaried execs running the Foundation .
