EKFH honored to receive $25,000 from dissolving Kimberley Society for Community Living
After over 50 years of advocating for and supporting community members with developmental disabilities, the Kimberley Society for Community Living is dissolving their society. Part of this process requires the disbursement of all assets to the eligible donors registered with the Canada Revenue Agency.
The East Kootenay Foundation for Health (EKFH) is honoured to receive $25,000 from the society. They have requested $15,000 be directed towards A Warm Embrace to bring a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to East Kootenay Regional Hospital. This NICU will ensure more East Kootenay families who have welcomed a premature baby can receive care closer to home.
The other $10,000 is directed towards the Kimberley Special Care Home, known locally as the Pines. This donation will help replace aging furniture so long-term care residents feel comfortable and at home.
EKFH is always sad to see a community non-profit close their doors and is grateful to be included in sharing the last of their work with the region. On behalf of the board of directors and staff at the EKFH we are very thankful for this wonderful gift. This will help so much in our fundraising efforts for the Pines and our Warm Embrace Campaign. We would like to thank all who have been involved with the Kimberley Society for Community Living for their hard work and generosity over the years.
