Our friends at Burnaby Hospital Foundation are launching their third annual For the Love of Burnaby campaign celebrating the incredible dedication of our healthcare heroes.

Burnaby Hospital Foundation, with the help of their partners and supporters are celebrating the occasion with a week of treats and displays of gratitude, both in-person and online.

The For the Love of Burnaby initiative began with treats provided by the Foundation’s donors to hospital staff, and the idea has grown from there. This year, community partners Daiya, Domino’s, Glenburn Soda Foundation, Organika, TD Bank Group, and The City of Burnaby, along with members of the community, are pitching in to show appreciation for our healthcare heroes by providing them with treats and tokens of their appreciation.

What is it?

For the Love of Burnaby is a campaign to show gratitude for our family of healthcare staff, from our front-line doctors and nurses to all the support and administration staff who are essential to a well-run hospital. This week is a chance for our community to say thank you to our healthcare workers and to learn a bit more about what goes on inside the hospital.

As part of the celebrations, Burnaby Hospital Foundation is sharing inspirational stories from staff, patients, and Foundation supporters, highlighting some of the incredible work that goes on every day in our beloved hospital. This year features stories about the Diagnostic Cardiology Department, a long-time Burnaby resident’s experience in the Emergency Department, and a young fundraiser’s ambitious birthday goals.

It’s easy for anybody to get involved with the campaign. Simply sharing awareness for the Burnaby Hospital’s work by posting on social media, talking to your friends, or reading inspirational stories can go a long way.

In honour of the commitment and dedication of Burnaby’s healthcare heroes, the Foundation is also using this week to raise funds in support the Proud History, Bright Future Campaign to transform Burnaby Hospital into a state-of-the-art healthcare campus.

There is no better investment than to help our medical staff do the best job that they can. Contributing a donation towards upgraded medical equipment, advanced technologies, and staff education ultimately provides even better patient care for you and your loved ones.

There are a number of other ways to participate in For the Love of Burnaby: engaging with Burnaby Hospital Foundation on social media, leaving messages of support for staff on their website, donating to the redevelopment, or by visiting a restaurant participating in the Foundation’s Plate it Forward campaign.
