When the fundraiser started on the afternoon of May 7, the Student Medical Society of Saskatchewan (SMSS) set an initial goal of $15,000. In less than 24 hours, more than $10,000 had been donated. A combination of GoFundMe donations and e-transfers have increased the total amount to more than $41,000 as of May 11.

“It’s so amazing to see how quickly people answered our call to help to get the funds we need to purchase supplies that the community members will find useful and helpful,” said third-year medical student Kate Morrison, an organizer of the fundraising initiative and past president of the SMSS.
