Shawn Mendes donated $175,000 to provide The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in his hometown of Toronto with emergency medical resources to combat the coronavirus. And he's counting on his fans to keep it up.
He made the major monetary contribution alongside The Shawn Mendes Foundation so SickKids can buy much-needed medical supplies and equipment during the recent pandemic while continuing its efficient care of current patients, their families, the hospital staff and the overall community.
"We are so grateful to Shawn and The Shawn Mendes Foundation for their continued support of SickKids Foundation and our hospital here in Toronto," said Ted Garrard, CEO of the SickKids Foundation, in a statement obtained by Entertainment Tonight Canada. "This generous and timely donation will assist our hospital with increased efforts in prevention and screening of COVID-19."
