Ralph and Susan Sgro

Each McHappy Day, Ralph and Susan Sgro donate the proceeds raised in their Burlington and Waterdown McDonald’s locations to Joseph Brant Hospital’s Maternal & Child Program.

“One of the core values of McDonald’s is giving back to the Community where you work and live,” said Susan.

Since 1988, the Sgro’s have actively and generously supported Joseph Brant Hospital Foundation. In that time, the Hospital’s Special Care Nursery, Maternal and Child Family Sitting Room, Ambulatory Care program, Nina’s Place, the Critical Needs Fund and the Tomorrow is Here Capital Campaign have all benefited from their philanthropy.

The Sgro’s also continue their leadership support through the Our New Era Campaign, with Ralph taking a leadership role as Vice Chair of its Campaign Cabinet.

“At one time or another, we’re all going to use the Hospital, so it’s wonderful to be part of the redevelopment,” said Susan.

Helping to shape and build our Community is linked to quality health care for the Sgro’s.

“There’s a lot of pleasure in seeing the results of contributing to the Community,” said Ralph. “I think letting individuals know the importance of good health care is probably the most important thing we can do for our Community.”
