Gilda’s Club Simcoe Muskoka

Community Involvement 

 

As a cancer survivor, Jeff White knows the importance of community outreach and support.  Being diagnosed with cancer is terrifying, but with the help and support of family and friends the journey becomes a little easier.  In 1998 there was no place like Gilda’s in Barrie and many families, Jeff’s included, could have benefited from walking through the red door.

As stated on their website ” Because no cancer care plan is complete without emotional and social support, Gilda’s Club offers an innovative program of networking and support groups, education workshops and social activities all free of charge for people  living with cancer – and their friends and families. The clubhouse environment is warm, welcoming, and non-institutional

Now that the red doors are open wide welcoming everyone in the community that have been touched by cancer, it is important to support them in whatever way possible so that the red doors remain open.   Jeff White and his staff are committed in helping and have donated the 12 month property maintenance services at Gilda’s since the doors opened, and will remain doing so as long as they are needed.

Visit them on their website or drop in and see how you can volunteer your time or donate to help keep the red doors open.
