Tbaytel Supports St. Joseph’s Care Group Green Werks Garden and Outdoor Living Areas.

Tbaytel partnership with St. Joseph's Foundation

Tbaytel's partnership with St. Joseph's Foundation of Thunder Bay has most recently focused on the development of the wellness trail and garden areas at Hogarth Riverview Manor, Sister Leila Greco, Sister Margaret Smith Centre, and the balcony space at Bethammi Nursing Home. Funding from Tbaytel allows clients of the Team Werks Program with St. Joseph's Care Group to build and install planters for residents and clients to enjoy, and utilize some of the resulting produce in the Green Werks Cafe. Community partners including the Regional Food Distribution Association and Indigenous organizations also benefit from donations from the gardens. We're in it together.
