Mazol Shriners Recognizes Volunteer Week 2018

This is National Volunteer Week in Canada and we are celebrating the great volunteer efforts from Mazol Shriners!

Over 400 Shriners across Newfoundland and Labrador are dedicated to providing our children with world class medical treatment throughout our Hospital network in North America. Shriners annually conduct ongoing fundraising activities to support their philanthropy. Whether it be burn injuries, orthopaedics, spinal cord injuries, or  cleft lip and palate, Shriners are there to extend a helping hand and always at no cost to the family.

“As Potentate of Mazol Shriners in Newfoundland and Labrador I would like to thank our many Nobles who give selflessly to further the cause of our great philanthropy. Thank-you to all who  give their time, skills, experience, and passion to help others, without expecting anything in return.” – Ill. Sir Paul Rose

Shriners are the first point of contact, making the families travel  arrangements, co-ordinating their Hospital visit and providing ongoing care during each child’s period of treatment, whether they be infants or teenagers. All in all none of what Shriners do would be possible without the generous support of the general public and the private sector.
