百家千心 携手护家园——大觉多伦多中心发起同心抗疫捐赠活动第二期

             Hundreds of Homes, Thousands of Hearts

 

Please join the GEBIS Toronto group, as we valiantly work towards the second stage of:

                              Rescue Program for Emergency PPE Needs


Starting from April 1st, GEBIS Toronto has initiated the first stage of “Hundreds of Homes, Thousands of Hearts”, an charitable action dedicated in raising funds to alleviate PPE needs from the front-line medical organizations. GEBIS has received tons of favourable response and collected $30124.41 in total from 154 individual donors and 15 organizations across different fields. In addition to monetary donations, many volunteers helped purchase highly-demanded medical supplies, while others reached out to local hospitals to ensure smooth delivery. GEBIS Toronto would like to thank everyone who has spared their kindness during this action. And among those generous participants, GEBIS Toronto would like to extend appreciation especially to Judy from CCOA, as she took the lead sourcing critical supplies.

 

The execution of the action was more challenging than expected; seemingly simple tasks such as purchasing face masks required in-depth investigation and critical evaluation due to the high industry standards. Volunteers stayed up late contacting different wholesalers, applying for extensive wholesale procedures, and reading over 200 pages of documents to ensure the quality of the masks. Moreover, the high demand in the market also put a hurdle on the process. Paying deposits does not secure the transaction, as medical supplies are selling out rapidly across the country.

 

However, volunteers persevered despite all the challenges. By April 17th, GEBIS Toronto has successfully acquired numerous critical medical supplies with the amount raised. $9000 worth of masks went towards St.Michael Hospital in downtown Toronto; $10262.66 worth of supplies went to Markham Stouffville Hospital, while the rest was contributed to Southlake Regional Health Centre in New Market.

The scope of the pandemic has not abated; strong support for front-line heroes is needed more than ever, as they are risking their own safety protecting our loved ones. Please kindly forward this message to 10 others to encourage everyone to take part in this action.
