About our Charities - Michael Garron Hospital

Michael Garron Hospital Foundation

Nestled in the heart of East Toronto, Michael Garron Hospital (MGH) is a vibrant community teaching hospital serving one of Canada’s most diverse communities. For nearly 90 years, we have delivered high-quality, patient-centred healthcare services to more than 400,000 people in 22 distinct neighbourhoods, from welcoming a new life to facing the end-of-life. East Toronto is one of Canada’s most diverse communities, with more newcomers, children, elderly people living alone, and refugees than elsewhere in the city. And just as diverse as the faces in the hospital’s hallways are the healthcare needs of our community. We are proud of our strong community, clinical, research and academic partnerships, including the University of Toronto, Sunnybrook Health Sciences, The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), Centennial College, George Brown College, Michener Institute, Ryerson University and York University.

Michael Garron Hospital Foundation raises funds and engages our community in support of our hospital. A donation to Michael Garron Hospital is an investment in the prosperity of each and every person living in East Toronto. When members of our community are healthy, they are able to reach their full potential and better contribute to their family, neighbourhood, and ultimately, Canadian society.

The Heart of the East is Michael Garron Hospital Foundation’s $100-million fundraising effort in support of a healthier East Toronto - in particular, the $500-million transformation of the hospital campus. With your support, we will ensure our facility meets the needs of our diverse and often under-served community, accelerate research and learning, and elevate the patient care experience. Supporting the Heart of the East means supporting the well-being of our vibrant community. Because when people are healthy, everyone around them benefits.

About our charities - Community Centre 55

Community Centre 55 is an award-winning agency of the City of Toronto and a registered charity. We are located in Ward 32 of the City of Toronto. As the centre of our community, we provide a variety of multi service programs and we help people to help themselves. 

The building is owned by the City of Toronto and is a historical property, built in 1911. It was formerly Police Station Number 10 of the Toronto Police and became the headquarters for 55 Division of the Metropolitan Toronto Police Services. The building was allocated to the community in 1975 and the community used the numerals ‘55’ in its name to pay respect to the history of the building.

Community Centre 55’s Share a Christmas program provides Christmas assistance to over 1000 families.  Each eligible family residing in our catchment area receives a turkey or ham, milk, bread, potatoes, cake, frozen vegetables, a box of non-perishable foods and toys for children 16 years of age and under.  On December 22, local volunteers deliver directly to the family’s home. v
