W.E. Care for Kids...Really Care!

Windsor, ON. 

The Windsor Essex Cares For Kids Foundation, or commonly known as W.E. Care For Kids has raised approximately $7 million, since being established 20 years ago.  Their annual goal is to raise funds to assist children and adolescents who require hospitalization with medical equipment and other needs that assist the patient and their family.   Some of the  W.E. Care For Kids milestones include raising millions of dollars for, a dedicated Paediatric Operating Room, a Home at the Tayfour Campus Family Learning Place and the Ronald McDonald House Windsor.

Annually, they announce donations to various organizations and today, representatives from W.E. Care For Kids presented a cheque for $154,902.08 to Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation.  The funds will go toward medical equipment in the Family Birthing Centre, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Paediatric Services and the Operating Room.

Above their annual giving to Windsor Regional Hospital for 2017, they have also pledged an additional $99,000 for a Mobile C-Arm Mini View Diagnostic Imaging Machine.
