In addition to their inspiring gifts of time, Guelph General Hospital’s volunteers have made an inspiring financial gift of $250,000 in support of the Hospital’s most urgent and essential equipment needs. This is the largest pledge made by the Hospital’s Volunteer Association and brings their total giving to over $1.7 million over more than 30 years.
