POTSDAM -- The volunteers of the E.J. Noble Guild have raised more than $44,000 for Canton-Potsdam Hospital in the past year.
Their community fund-raising events include the annual HollyBerry Bazaar, the soup luncheon, the Night on the Town dance, and the guilds’ golf tournament. Guild volunteers also assist at hospital events like health fairs and educational programs, and serve as vital ambassadors between the hospital and the community.
This year’s guild contributions will be used for medical equipment in departments across the hospital, creation of a “Hospice Room,” two scholarships for students in their second year of the SUNY Canton Nursing Program, and the beautiful new butterfly garden installed by guild volunteers on the E.J. Noble campus in Canton.
Their gift also includes $17,889 from the Night on the Town in Miami dinner dance. Those funds will help to pay for the recently built Center for Cancer Care at the hospital’s main campus.
