Give a Gift That Lasts All Year Long

The holidays are a time to be home with friends and family – but many people at the hospital can’t be. So, we need holiday heroes to help us deliver miracles that will last all year long.

Supporting Our Community’s Greatest Needs

This year, we’re taking part in some new activities for 2022 while bringing back some of the most remarkable ones from years past.

Replacing our cardiac monitoring telemetry system, which is used in the ICU every day and is now beyond its service life

Purchasing new beds, furniture, and other necessary materials for the adult mental health inpatient unit

Cutting-edge equipment for orthopedic and hip surgery

Turn someone’s morning from blue to whoo

Pay for the next person’s coffee when you’re at your local café and watch them light up.

Give gifts with a personal touch

Drop off personal care and hygiene items at the hospital or a local shelter/ emergency organization.

Give the gift of your time and compassion

Volunteer at a local charitable organization, like the hospital’s gift shop or a pet shelter.

Let the warmth of your heart shine through

Cook some hot comfort food and drop it off with a friend or neighbour to see how good it feels to give.

Be kind to everyone (even when they’re at work)

Take the time to leave a glowing review for your favourite shop, restaurant, or small business. They’ll appreciate it more than you know!

A few kind words can lift up someone’s whole day

Carve out a few minutes to give someone a genuine compliment, in person or through text.

Help others dress for the cold

Donate new or very gently worn clothes to the hospital or a local shelter.

Rediscover the lost art of letter writing

Send a handwritten message to a senior in the hospital! Address the letter to “Acts of Kindness” and send to 666 5 St SW, Medicine Hat, AB T1A 4H6.

Be a Secret Santa for a healthcare worker

Make a donation of $10-$20 in the name of a healthcare hero from our region.

Help someone get a hearty meal for the holidays

Make a donation to the Medicine Hat Food Bank through the Root Cellar.

Spread the holiday cheer to those who need it most

Help us fill the hospital’s Treasure Chest with new toys and activities for kids.

Make yourself a snow angel in the neighbourhood

Clear off a neighbour’s car, sidewalk, or driveway for those major kindness points.

Get Involved with Giving

The Tribute Tree

This annual favourite is back at the hospital! Purchase an ornament and hang it in memory or in honor of a loved one. Ornaments are available at downtown’s Midnight Madness event on November 18, or in the hospital atrium from Nov 21 – Dec 23 (Monday-Friday, 10 AM – 2 PM).

Clothing Donations

At the west and east entrances, we’re collecting new or gently worn warm clothes: socks, gloves and hats, boots, coats, sweatpants, and underwear. These are for patients who often come in unprepared for the cold weather.

Keep up with our Christmas campaign

All the donations made to MHHF stay right here in our community, where they are reinvested in equipment, training, supplies, and other necessary resources. It’s true what they say – donating is literally good for your health!
