OTTAWA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mead Johnson Nutrition (MJN) Canada announces today that St. Marys Home in Ottawa has been given a US$250,000 donation to help support their ongoing efforts to encourage and support young pregnant women, young parents and their children. Mead Johnson has a long history of giving back to the communities in which it operates, and recognizes the important role that companies can play in partnership with charitable organizations, community leaders and government bodies in helping to protect at-risk populations and helping to make local communities better and more compassionate places to live.
We have been in partnership with St. Marys Home for the past 6 years supporting them in the services they provide to individuals and new families in the city of Ottawa and Eastern Ontario. What they do every day for parents and young children throughout our community impresses and inspires us, said Don Robb, General Manager for MJN Canada. Their work is aligned with Mead Johnsons philanthropic focus on helping to meet the nutritional, developmental and education needs of infants and children in fragile and vulnerable circumstances, as well as supporting parents and strong families. It is our hope that this funding serves as a catalyst for other support for this great cause to enable St. Marys Home to continue growing their operations to support unmet needs for their services and put even more infants, parents and families on the path toward healthier and more successful tomorrows.
We see young families face struggles every day, and we strive, through our programs, to build on their strengths so that they have healthy pregnancies and births. We want to help parents develop the necessary skills to raise healthy, happy and successful children, noted Shauna Graham, President of the Board of St. Marys Home. We sincerely thank Mead Johnson Nutrition Canada for their ongoing interest and support to our organization. The donation from the MJN Foundation will provide us the opportunity to build an investment fund that will grow and be used to address future needs of St. Marys Home and growing demand for the critical services we offer.
Honorable Madeleine Meilleur, MPP for Ottawa-Vanier, spoke about the relationship, saying, Meaningful partnerships that improve our communities are always welcome. It is important for all sectors, including private industry, to work together in creating a more compassionate and caring community. Mead Johnson Nutrition Canada and St. Marys Home are leading by example, and I applaud their partnership.
