Jeff Smith, Executive Vice President of Manitoulin Transport, one of Canada’s largest freight carriers, presented a $10,000 donation to Health Sciences North Foundation. 

This $10,000 donation will help fund the highest priority needs of Health Sciences North (HSN).

"On behalf of HSN Foundation, I would like to thank Manitoulin Transport for their support,” says Mary Lou Hussak, Executive Director of the HSN Foundation. "Thanks to generous donors like Manitoulin Transport, HSN has some of the most modern equipment available to provide top quality care."

Every dollar given to HSN Foundation goes to help more than 530,000 men, women and children in northeastern Ontario who rely on HSN for their care every year.

“We are happy to support HSN Foundation and the priority needs of our community,” says Jeff Smith, Executive Vice President of Manitoulin Transport. “Many of our staff, families and friends have benefited from the high quality patient care HSN provides.”
