Brantford Hospital - DSS Trucking Services Ltd - gifts busy bags to Paediatric
Thank you so much to DSS Trucking Services Ltd. for their wonderfully generous donation of ‘busy bags‘ to the Brant Community Healthcare System (BCHS) Foundation for the BCHS Paediatric Department on Jan. 8th.
Darren Sheppard, the owner of DSS Trucking Services, has given back to local healthcare since 2013 after his own family’s positive experiences in the Paediatric Department at the BCHS gave them a personal insight into the importance of ‘busy bags’ for our younger hospital patients.
Busy bags have been proven to distract and calm younger patients during their stay in the Paediatric Department, so the Sheppard family and the team at DSS Trucking Services prepared 100 individual bags containing items such as a stuffed animal, a colouring book and crayons, pencils, activities and much more for our youngest patients.
Together, we are transforming healthcare in our community
