The Muskoka region has not been spared by the ongoing spread of COVID-19 that has confined millions around the world to their homes. According to the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, the area has reported a number of positive cases since the outbreak was initially reported in early 2020. As proud members of the Muskoka Building Community, the Muskoka Builders’ Association (MBA) has launched a $100,000 COVID-19 fundraising campaign to benefit the area’s local food banks, shelters, hospitals, and hospital foundations. All proceeds raised by the fundraiser will remain within the community. Muskoka Window and Door Centre is a proud longstanding member of the MBA.
Some of the vital charities and services that will benefit from the MBA’s COVID-19 relief fund include:
- Manna Food Bank, Bracebridge
- Table Soup Kitchen Foundation, Huntsville
- Harvest Share Community Food Program, Parry Sound
- West Muskoka Food Bank, Port Carling
- Muskoka Women’s Advocacy Group
- South Muskoka Hospital Foundation
- Huntsville Hospital Foundation
- West Parry Sound Health Centre Foundation
To kick off the campaign, the MBA has pledged $10,000 on behalf of its members. Muskoka Window & Door Centre is a long-time member of the Muskoka Builders’ Association, and we take pride in being able to assist our community during its time of need. All funds raised will go towards giving food and other essentials to those in need, purchasing critical PPE for healthcare workers, and offering shelter and safety to ask-risk individuals during these uncertain times.
