June 8, 2020 - Donor Story, Stories
407 ETR is committed to supporting the communities surrounding its corridor and has been a long-time supporter of the hospitals that lie along the 108 km highway. To help meet increased demand on healthcare resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, the company has donated $50,000 to 24 hospitals, including Brampton Civic and Etobicoke General, respectively, for a $1.2 million commitment. This donation is in addition to the 407 ETR’s annual hospital donation and is part of a $5.2 million COVID-19 response commitment. The remaining $4 million is being directed to United Way agencies along the corridor.
“Giving back to the communities we serve has always been a strategic focus for us, and clearly it’s more important now than ever,” says 407 ETR President & CEO, Andres Sacristan. “It’s been a privilege working with the Osler Foundation team over the years and we’re happy to be able to include them in our latest COVID-19 response.”
Etobicoke General is the closest hospital to 407 ETR headquarters in Woodbridge. “It’s a great feeling of comfort knowing that we’re in good hands, with the Etobicoke General team less than 5 kilometres away,” says Andres. “On behalf of the entire 407 ETR team, thank you to all the hospital workers at William Osler Health System’s hospitals. We truly appreciate your work.”
