CHARITY BACKGROUND

St. John Ambulance is a worldwide non-denominational, international charity which provides first aid, health care and support services in over 40 countries. Together, we make up the Order of St. John, which is accredited to the United Nations. The Order’s charitable work is carried out by the St. John Eye Hospital in Jerusalem and over 40 national St. John Ambulance Priories worldwide. In Canada, the first St. John Ambulance Branch was established in 1883 in Quebec City.

 

St. John Ambulance York Region Branch, established in 1991, serves the nine municipalities in York Region. We provide community support our four Medical First Responder Units whose volunteers treated 193 patients at 132 events last year; our four Therapy Dog Units whose 162 therapy dogs and handlers made 5,500 visits to 295 facilities, schools and workplaces; our four Youth Units whose 206 children and youth volunteers participated in our cadet program, learning first aid and leadership; and our Child Car Seat Safety Unit whose hard-working volunteers inspected 254 child car seats at 14 car seat safety clinics.

 

In addition, we also stand ready to assist at major events and support regional emergency management including the 2013 Special Olympics, December 2013 Ice Storm, 2015 Pan and ParaPan American Games, and the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto. In 2018, our 609 volunteers provided 72,109 hours of volunteer time to the community.

 

In keeping with St. John’s mission, our Branch provided first aid training to more than 5,000 people in 2018 alone. Although our charitable work is supported by revenues from first aid training, we must still rely on donations and special event fundraising to continue providing our diverse and important volunteer services within our communities. Hence, your support will be very much appreciated.

 

If you have any questions regarding our corporate sponsorship request, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for your consideration.


Sincerely,
BRANCH FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE
