Jani-King is proud to announce its collaboration with the Kent Great Big Dig for the 14th year! Thanks to donations from generous supporters across the Maritimes, the Great Big Dig raised $515,000 to help purchase much needed equipment for the integration of a pediatric operating room at the IWK Health Centre.
“On behalf of everyone at Jani-King, I’d like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all those who contributed to this remarkable achievement,” shares Ed McNamara, President & Regional Director of Jani-King Nova Scotia and long-time Great Big Dig Committee Member. “It’s through collaborative endeavours like these that we can make a tangible difference in our communities and create a brighter future for the youngest and most vulnerable among us.”
Located in Halifax, the IWK Health Centre provides quality care to women, children, youth, and families throughout the Maritime provinces. In addition to providing care, the IWK is a global leader in research and knowledge sharing. Equipment purchased with funds raised from the Kent Great Big Dig will help ensure enhanced efficiency, communication and infection control while resulting in faster recoveries, shorter stays in hospital and reduced wait times for patients.
“As an organization committed to social responsibility and community engagement, we recognize the importance of supporting initiatives that make a meaningful difference,” says Robert McNamara, Vice-President of Jani-King Nova Scotia. “The success of the Kent Great Big Dig reaffirms our belief in the incredible things that can be accomplished when communities unite for a noble cause.”
