Your change makes a change

Change of Heart is a new initiative to raise funds for and awareness of The Maritime Heart Center, a local charity supporting heart disease care and prevention in the Maritimes.

This October, Change of Heart was launched throughout Capital Health. The campaign encourages people to donate their pennies (which will be removed from circulation in the coming months) until Jan. 31, 2013. There are 14 collection bottles at Capital Health. 

Within the first week of the Maritime Heart Center campaign, the 18-litre bottle from the VG site of the QEII Health Sciences Centre was full, contributing more than $500 toward the fundraiser. The money from Change of Heart directly supports the world-class care given to our patients. Thank for you making the kickoff such a success!

The Maritime Heart Center would like to remind anyone who is interested in donating to drop off their loose change to one of the locations below. The Maritime Heart Center will take care of the rest!
