Generous Heart Brings Lots of Activities to Psych Unit
Cranbrook, BC… It was a contest like no other; purchase a car at Cranbrook Mitsubishi
and the dealership would award the purchaser $10,000. The other amazing catch to the story is that the purchaser would then receive an additional $10,000 for a charity of their choice.
For Danielle Evans that choice was a simple one; she chose the East Kootenay Foundation for Health. EKFH worked with Danielle to steward the funds to purchase a variety of activity equipment and items for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital’s psychiatry unit.
“There is a long list of items that Danielle’s gift has purchased from cooking and baking supplies, arts and crafts items, a recumbent bike and air hockey table. Her personal goal of keeping people active while on the unit has certainly been achieved,” says EKFH’s Donna Grainger.
A donation to EKFH can make a difference in not just the physical health of a patient but mental health too. No matter the size of the gift it is in the giving that truly makes a difference in the work the foundation undertakes.
EKFH’s 8th annual Starlite Campaign will launch on November 27. To make a donation please visit uswww.ekfh.ca and don’t forget to like us on Facebook too.
