$500 For Health Care – Life’s Brighter Under the Sun

Submitted by EKFH on 03-07-2014

Cranbrook, BC… Although Michael Christianson, CLU CH FC of Sun Life Financial left his position as a member of the board with East Kootenay Foundation for Health last year, his commitment to supporting health care has stayed steadfast.

Last week Michael presented EKFH’s Executive Donna Grainger with a gift $500 as part of Sun Life Financial’s volunteer recognition program.

As a Financial Advisor, he understands how important a gift to health care can be. “I am proud to continue to support the philanthropic work of EKFH. Each and every donation it receives really does make a difference to fund medical equipment, programs and/or patient comforts,” explains Christianson.

By allowing the foundation to select an area of care to benefit from this generous gift; the East Kootenay Regional Hospital psychiatric unit is receiving some very important patient comforts and recreation items.

The EKFH board of directors set its own goal to be a group of community-minded and philanthropic individuals that want to leave something behind after serving on the board. It safe to say, Michael Christianson is doing just that.
