Carefirst 2023 Radiothon & Seniors Information and Active Living Fair

On December 14, 2023, Carefirst Annual Radiothon was successfully held, raising over $175,000.

In collaboration with Sing Tao A1 Chinese Radio (AM1540), inspiring stories were shared on how Carefirst’s services make a difference in the community. All proceeds raised were designated towards supporting the Carefirst Campus of Care capital campaign project to be located at 9893 Leslie Street, Richmond Hill. Huge thank you to all our sponsors and donors for their huge support, and our 16 volunteers who helped to answer calls at the Call Centre all day. In appreciation to our donors, Carefirst also hosted The “You Make Caring Possible” Reception presenting updates on the development of Carefirst Campus of Care, a project donors are an integral contributor to. A donor recognition and lunch appreciation reception were followed. Your donations make a difference every day!
