On Friday, October 18th 2013, The Transportation Maintenance & Technology Association (TMTA) visited Windsor Regional Hospitals Met Campus and donated $2000 to the Paediatric Child Life Services.

The TMTA is a non-profit organization that promotes the interests and rights of those involved in transportation maintenance, transportation technology and incidental businesses.

“My granddaughter is three years old and received great care from the staff, I was extremely pleased and felt like we could make a donation to help,” explains TMTA Vice President TJ Griffin.

The TMTA raised money by introducing the first annual TMTA Golf Tournament and all proceeds benefitted the Paediatric Child Life Services at Windsor Regional. The TMTA plans to use their event to continually support the Paediatric Oncology Centre in the future.

The Paediatric Child Life Service could not be more thrilled with the donation from the TMTA. The money raised will go towards purchasing child-proof bandages and other supplies needed within the paediatric wing at Met Campus.

The Child Life Services was founded in September 2005. It aims to reduce the stress and anxiety in children that is often associated with hospital visits. The Child Life Services team is composed of child life specialists, child life students, music therapy students, co-op students and volunteers.
