Thank you From Our Frontline Workers
The Gifts of Gratitude provided our heroic frontline workers, and their families, a chance to enjoy a well-deserved something special when they need it most.
For $500, each Gift of Gratitude gave frontline workers and their families items & gift cards for things such as meals, experiences, and other treats curated from local vendors.

While you showed your gratitude for our frontline workers you are also supported the University Hospital Foundation’s Festival of Trees 2021 cause, West Edmonton Kidney Care, a University of Alberta Hospital community facility.
For those diagnosed with end-stage kidney disease life can be exhausting, one of the first things to go is their independence. The demands of 12-16 hours of in-hospital dialysis every week, without fail, are tiring. Holding a job becomes a challenge. Their lives are not their own.
By taking their treatments at home, on their own schedule, when the timing is best for them, people living with end-stage kidney disease will feel better faster – and get their lives back.
