Grenfell Foundation (South Chapter)
The Grenfell Foundation is a registered charitable organization created to support the work of Labrador-Grenfell Health. Funds raised are used for capital equipment, research, and staff development relating to the services provided by Labrador-Grenfell Health.
The Grenfell Foundation was established in 2002 to receive funds to be utilized towards the purchase of priority diagnostic medical equipment. The Grenfell Foundation serves the Labrador-Grenfell Health region and includes three chapters:
- South Chapter: serving the Northern Peninsula (north of Bartlett’s Harbour) and Labrador South,
- Labrador East Chapter: serving Lake Melville, the North Coast and Black Tickle, north to Nain, and

What People Say
The John M. Gray Center has proudly received a semi-automated external defibrillator (SAED) from the Grenfell Foundation. Having this piece of equipment readily available in the JMG Center allows staff to quickly respond to an emergency while awaiting the arrival of ambulance services. All JMG Staff are certified in CPR and the use of SAED in emergency situations when every second counts.
A cardiac arrest (when the heart stops beating) can strike anyone at any time. An emergency responder trained in CPR and SAED usage having this equipment available during an emergency doubles the victim’s chance of survival.
The staff, residents and family members of the JMG Center extend their sincere thanks for this donation of vital equipment.
Your support of the Grenfell Foundation delivered new sleep recorders. These replaced aging equipment and brought the latest technology in the diagnosis of sleep apnea to people in the Great Northern Peninsula and Southern Labrador.
