Personal Values Prompt Investment in CGMHF
To say that Larry Law is a generous and spiritual man would be an understatement. As the owner of Living Water Resort & Spa (formerly known as Cranberry Resort), Law puts his financial resources and personal efforts into a wide variety of worthy causes both in South Georgian Bay and in developing countries. Today, Law chose to support the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital Foundation with a $100,000 pledge.
Whether it is his work with Home Horizon in Collingwood to transition at risk youth to permanent employment at Living Water Resort & Spa; his financial support and mission work with orphans in Kenya and Paraguay; or the scholarships he graciously provides to students at Georgian College and Tyndale University College and Seminary, Law feels that helping the less fortunate is simply part of his Christian values.
“It is by God’s grace that I have the resources to help people in my community and beyond,” says Law. “Each of us has an important role to play in making our communities and the world a better place. I follow my heart to help where I see the greatest need.”
“Together with the support of many of our staff, it gives us great joy to help the less fortunate,” reports Law. “I am particularly happy when I can see the results of our support changing lives before my eyes.”
It is with this mission in mind that Law approached Collingwood G&M Hospital (CGMH) Foundation to determine how he could positively impact lives in his local community as well as ensuring that guests at Living Water Resort & Spa had access to the very best healthcare when they visit South Georgian Bay. When he saw the deteriorating state of the inpatient rooms at CGMH and heard how technology could help solve the problem of hospital acquired infections, he was quick to invest $100,000.
This gift launches a $1 million fundraising effort by CGMHF that will see the renovation of all 58 existing inpatient rooms. In addition to new paint and curtains, each room will be outfitted with state of the art infection control technology in the patient washrooms. The goal of the campaign is to reduce the spread of Hospital Acquired Infections through engineered solutions.
“Everyone deserves to be cared for in clean, comfortable spaces,” says Law. “As we wait for a new hospital to be built, I am thankful that I can help keep patients comfortable and safe.”
“We are extremely grateful to have such generous supporters in our community,” says CGMH President & CEO, Norah Holder. “Without gifts such as this, we would be unable to afford the equipment and technology needed to care for our patients and that our community deserves.”
