BUSY MONTHS MAKE A BUSY YEAR
This past year the Foundation was present at several very
popular community events such as the CAFI (Canadian Association of
Fire Investigators) Golf Tournament in Newmarket and the Quinte Area Crafters Spring
and Christmas Shows both held in Trenton.
ALL IN A DAY'S WORK:
In addition to the regular daily execution of its burn education and prevention mandates
and its continuing major charitable efforts in bringing concrete and material help to
burned children, donors support and anonymous donations have allowed the Foundation to
complete several special charitable projects, namely:
Enabling Christopher P., fourteen year-old burn victim from Renfrew Ontario to attend
summer Burn Camp in Alberta and be close to friends. The TOMA Foundation partially paid
for his plane fare and made sure that he had an ample supply of TOMA T-shirts to wear
while at camp.
An anonymous donor made several dozen CDs and cassettes of Disney popular classic tunes
available to the Foundation for distribution to burned kids and these were passed on to
the Plastie Clinic of Ste-Justine Hospital in Montreal, Children's Hospital of Eastern
Ontario (CHEO), Hamilton General Hospital's Children Burn Unit, London Health Sciences
Centre and Windsor General Hospital were dozens of burned children's
lives were enhanced
by these recordings .
The Foundation made available a special disbursement account at
Ste.-Justine Hospital in Montreal and London Health Sciences Centre so
that moneys could be made readily available for various uses such as
the needs of the mother of a young burn patient transferred from a New
Brunswick hospital so as to insure her daily presence at the side of
the ailing child.
Mike Scargall of Brantford, ON., a
burn survivor teen was the recipient of a Dell desktop computer
complete with printer and free unlimited Internet access time.
AND FAST FORWARD.....
As the new year is upon us, the Foundation is already committed to
Fire Prevention week with several events planned in Ontario and
Quebec. Highlights of the season will be the CAFI Golf Tournament and our
continued involvement with the Quinte Area Crafters Guild.
