In September, the Canora Hospital “Have Fun at Work Committee” decided to do dress down Friday’s with a $2 donation to the Chase Kraynick Memorial Splash Park. After announcing to hospital staff about dress down Friday’s , staff were wanting a way to show the public what we were dressing down for and the suggestion of t-shirts came up. Staff quickly organized what they wanted the shirts to look like and they were ordered.
Beginning in September we put out a jar on Fridays and staff who dressed down put a $2 in the jar. So far from the t-shirt sales and the dress down jar we have raised almost $500. So now on Fridays, when staff dress down and donate their $2 they focus their thoughts on Paying it Forward!
