Your support of Michael Garron Hospital means so much more than a donation: it is an investment in the well-being of everyone living in East Toronto. And it shows your customers how much you care about them and their families.

Join our Love the East program for local businesses, leaders, and groups, and publicly demonstrate your commitment to your community. Together, we can create better health for all those who live and work in our vibrant neighbourhood.

The benefits of participation

  • Show that you care about the health of East Toronto—people support businesses that give back
  • Motivate employees—they’ll take pride in helping their community
  • Earn recognition through Michael Garron Hospital Foundation channels and show everyone that you Love the East

We offer a wide range of benefits to celebrate your support. For more information, download this brochure or contact us
