Your pennies have one last chance to make a lasting impression - and this time not in your pocket or change purse.
About Pennies for Pediatrics
Pennies For Pediatrics is a campaign to raise approximately $100,000 on behalf of pediatric services at Health Sciences North/Horizon Santé-Nord (HSN).
Pennies For Pediatrics began as a six-month campaign, launched in May of 2012. The Pennies For Pediatrics campaign is now being extended, following the federal government decision to keep the penny in circulation until February, 2013
The goal of the Pennies for Pediatrics campaign is to raise funds for a therapeutic Snoezelen® Pool. A Snoezelen® Pool is specially equipped with lighting and other sensory stimulation equipment. It is used primarily for the treatment of children with autism and other developmental conditions. The existing therapeutic pool at HSN will be retrofitted with the necessary equipment to allow it to function as a Snoezelen® Pool. The pool will also be available for treatment of adults with developmental conditions.
The major co-sponsors of the Pennies For Pediatrics campaign are RBC Royal Bank and Vale.
