Donations for frontline workers get real – through a significant donation to the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation for Scrubs.

We are ever so grateful to the Newell’s for their unwavering support for Spirit of the North. Their generosity at this time has made some frontline workers pretty happy. This purchase will have a lasting impact for healthcare workers directly in the line of potential COVID patients. Thank you!!

If you too would like to donate, a fund has been set up at https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/12869 or contact us directly to support COVID19-#safeathome Fund.

#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that takes place every Tuesday in May, as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. The global day of action will rally people around the world and hopefully throughout our Region of Northern BC to tap into the power of human connection and strengthen communities through response for better health outcomes here at home in the North. We invite you to join us in demonstrating the power of kindness and generosity. Please consider at gift to our COVID-19 #safeathome Fund


“My passion for nursing started in grade four.  I can’t explain why I started doing this, but instead of going out for recess.  I would go to the school’s first aid room and wait for kids to come in so I could bandage their scrapes and look at their bruises. My scope wasn’t very large at this time!  Thankfully, the staff in the office allowed me to do this every day and started calling me “Nurse Danielle.”

Prince George Ford has strived for a more personal connection with the community in the last few years and we look to continue that push for connection. We hope it helps bring some sense of security in these unprecedented times."

Spirit of Caring for Others

May 1, 2020


How would you like to brighten someone’s day? 

Join us as we launch our SPIRIT OF CARING FOR OTHERS program.  In supporting better healthcare throughout the North, we know all too well that sometimes your health and how you feel is very much related to the kindness and goodness around you.  Social isolation might be what we need to do right now, but often for those in care, that’s a reality much of the time.  We are encouraging as many school aged children, budding artists, poets, or people who just know how to put kind thoughts to paper to do just that.  We in turn, and in partnership with our good friends at Northland Hyundai, will make sure that any messages dropped off at their location at 2021 HWY-16 West, will be delivered to someone in care and will definitely make their day brighter.

When you drop off your letter be sure to post a picture of yourself and #spiritofcaring, #teamspirit, or #spiritofthenorth, and most of all – SHARE, to inspire others to do so too!  For more information contact us today at www.spiritofthenorth.ca
