Included here are just a few testimonials from volunteers, the Family Health Teams in the City and County of Peterborough, and the non-profit charitable organizations that have received support (from the Foundation endowment funds) over the years:
Triarch Placement Program (2011)
"I would like to thank Hannah, Carol, and Christina from the Foundation for all the guidance, support, and encouragement that you gave me in realizing that I can do this. I learned more about working on different computer programs, which I previously always felt a little computer illiterate about. You also gave me skills in different tasks that I never have done before. You also gave me confidence and for that I can never thank you enough."
Chemong Family Health Team
"Thank you very much for the donation and coordination of the wheelchairs to both the Lakefield Morton Centre and the Chemong Clinic in Bridgenorth. They will be of great service to our patients." - Physicians and Staff of Chemong Family Health Team
Peterborough Community Family Health Team
"On behalf of the Peterborough Community Family Health Team, we would like to thank the Board of the Greater Peterborough Health Services Foundation for the purchase of Oximeters to be used in our practices. They arrived at a most opportune time in view of the ongoing H1N1 pandemic, but will continue to be useful in the assessment of our many patients with asthma and chronic obstructive lung disease." - Dr. Stephen Ragaz, Lead Physician, and Dr. John Beamish, Associate Lead Physician Peterborough Community Family Health Team
The Peterborough Clinic Family Health Team
"On behalf of the health care personnel of The Peterborough Clinic Family Health Team we wish to express our appreciation for the oximeters that we received. They are extremely valuable in our assessment of Influenza Like Illness in our patients and also those patients in our Day Clinic who do not have a family doctor. Thank you for assisting us during this challenging time." - Dr. Judith A. Armstrong.
Learning Disabilities Association of Peterborough
“The Foundation has provided resources that have truly enhanced the delivery of our services. We were devastated by the 2004 flood and our unique Resource Library was lost. With the financial support we were able to rebuild a portion of this important community resource.”
“Thank you to St. Joseph's Care Foundation for providing Hospice Peterborough with a $5,000 grant to refurbish our Community Library. With the help of the grant we have been able to continue to provide essential resources and information services that benefit our entire community."
Community Care Peterborough
"The grant received will allow us to purchase eight additional personal distress alarms to install for eight new clients living in Peterborough County and City. Community Care is aware of several situations where a client of the service has used the system, help has arrived and disaster or certainly significant pain and suffering have been avoided. Thank you for assisting in improving the quality of life for area seniors and adults with physical challenges living throughout the County and City."
