Shoebox Foundation

Jon Patte was a long time teacher with the Durham District School Board and avid sports advocate who recently passed away due to cancer. Jon’s memory will live on in many ways, but most tangibly perhaps through a foundation being set up by his family. Plans are in the making for a couple of annual events, a dance and a golf tournament, but donations can also be made through any Scotiabank branch under account #08136-0110620. The money will be distributed to families going through similar experiences. Jon was able to take several trips, including a family cruise, thanks to the money raised by his friends. It also helped offset some of the costs associated with his cancer treatments over his final 18 months.
