Administrative history

The Guild was formed in Winnipeg on September 28 1928 as the Junior St. John's Guild to assist the Infant Ward of the Children's Hospital by making and donating articles of clothing and aiding in money-raising events. In September 1932 the name was changed to the Annie A. Bond Guild to honour the founder of the Children's Hospital.
The Guild worked as a unit of the Red Cross during the Second World War donating knitted and sewn items, blankets, and dunnage bags. The Guild continued to donate hand crafted items to the Children’s Hospital and their work has since expanded to include fund-raising for building projects and hospital research, equipment for patients, and prizes for nurses. Their work also included the Remembrance Fund, the Teddy coin box program, assisting in the Book Market and fostering good public relations between the Children's Hospital and the community.
The Lt. Melville Wood Guild in the late 1970s, and the Ladies Auxiliary of the Winnipeg Rh Institute in the mid-1980s merged with the Annie A. Bonnie Guild.
In 2010, the five Guilds of the Children’s Hospital of Winnipeg – St. Agnes, St. John’s, Annie A. Bond, McKinnon, and Chown – Amalgamated into a single entity to create the Children’s Hospital Guild of Manitoba.
