What a great way to start off the week! Dundas Manor was pleased to host its first ‘Fries for Charity’ event on Monday, August 9th. Families, friends, and neighbours were invited to stop by for some amazing French fries. All donations were directed to the WDMH Foundation’s Healthcare Undesignated Fund to be used where needed most at WDMH and Dundas Manor.

At the end of the day, $2,000 was raised! And Dundas Manor residents and staff got to enjoy the tasty treat too.

Fries for Charity owner Al Graham says he was inspired to build the truck so he could stay involved with the community. “Fries for Charity allows me to do that – and support local charities at the same time,” he said.

At the cheque presentation are: Al Graham, Dundas Manor Nutritional Manager Stacey Williams and Justine Plummer, Manager of Direct Mail & Events, WDMH Foundation.

“We are so grateful to everyone who came out to support this event,” noted WDMH Foundation Managing Director Kristen Casselman. “What a nice treat!”

“Special thanks to all the sponsors of the event and the many volunteers who helped out,” added Susan Poirier, Dundas Manor Administrator. “And a shout-out to Foodland who delivered extra potatoes when we ran out.”
