War Memorial Hospital Auxiliary to Host Scrap Metal Fundraiser to Help Those With Medical Needs, June 7 – 12

As we all know, fundraisers this past year have taken a hit with the COVID-19 pandemic. And, now with restrictions being lifted, more and more organizations are looking to make up for lost time-Wmh and contributions.

This is why the War Memorial Hospital Auxiliary in Sault Ste. Marie is holding a scrap metal drive from June 7 through June 12. The drop-off spot is located in the parking lot at the corner of Nolte and Pine.

Normally, through their annual fundraisers, the Auxiliary raises close to 50-thousand dollars to put towards the hospital’s needs. They also offer a 3-thousand dollar nursing scholarship at Lake Superior State University.  

“Anything we do that goes back to the hospital, we say you never know when your family is going to need that equipment or need that resource that is not available that we can make available…that will help them make their stay easier and more comfortable,” says WMH Auxiliary Vice President, Joyce Henderson. “The support from the community and hospital workers is wonderful!”

Items not accepted include TVs, tires, wood, cement and plastic/glass. For a full list of accepted items, visit www.reidmetals.com.
