Rossy raises $15,000 for the children of Newfoundland and Labrador

Montreal, June 12, 2018 – For the fifth consecutive year, Rossy stores are proud to participate in the fundraising efforts benefitting the Janeway Children’s Hospital Foundation in St. John’s, Newfoundland. This year, almost $15,000 was raised thanks the collaboration of various Rossy stores across Newfoundland and Labrador.

“Community participation is extremely important to us,” says Michael DiTullio, President and CEO of Michael Rossy Ltd. “Our aim is to support and to be part of the communities where we are located.”

The funds will be used to support the financial needs of the children’s health and rehabilitation center hospital, including pediatric and mobility research and the purchasing of medical equipment.

“We wanted to raise more this year than we did last year so we gave it our all, employees and clients, and I think it worked well. We are very proud of the results,” explains Polly Smith, a Rossy employee from St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Rossy, who has contributed to this initiative since 2014, has raised a total of approximately $53,000 over the years.

“We are extremely proud of our teams in Newfoundland and Labrador for all their hard work on this very important initiative, from selling balloons to being active participants during the telethon,” says Michael DiTullio. “Janeway Children’s Hospital is more than just a hospital. It is a place called home by many children and their families in our communities. We will continue to support this great cause and remain as involved as possible.”

Funds were raised through the sale of helium balloons for $1 as part of the Miracle Balloon program put in place by the hospital in 10 Rossy stores across the province.

Employees also contributed by participating greatly in the telethon that took place on June 1st, 2018.

“Every family in the province has, in some way, already benefit from the services of this hospital and that’s the reason why it touches everyone’s heart and prompts people to contribute,” highlights Mrs. Smith.

The company is already happy to announce that it will continue to participate in the fundraising efforts in 2019.
