At the heart of the Maritime Provinces is a very special place that is loved by many for a variety of reasons. For some it is a place of work, for others it is the place where their child was saved. Some refer to it as a home away from home, while others take comfort in knowing it is there if needed. It is the IWK Children's Hospital. Over the past year Sissiboo Home Hardware Building Centre has held fundraising events to help support the IWK Children's Hospital. This year we raised $12,000.00 in memory of Gracie Sabine. A big thank you to all the employees who put these events on and to all our loyal customers who patronize these fundraising events! YOU ROCK!
