Like many of us, the healthcare world's philanthropic partners have been significantly impacted by COVID-19. Despite the challenges we have all faced, so many community-minded organizations continue to work together to find innovative ways to support healthcare across Alberta.
Their efforts have included many new fundraising initiatives, like Operation Frontline Impact, which consists of 39 foundations across northern Alberta dedicated to supporting our healthcare teams who have been fighting against COVID-19.
Together, the group has been extremely fortunate and grateful to have partnered with amazing organizations like the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation, who have—for the second time—donated proceeds from the Oilers 50/50 to the cause!
