During its recent Client Appreciation Days members of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch No 24 invited East Kootenay Foundation for Health’s Donna Grainger to come and celebrate. While there the Legion donated $6,800 to to purchase three Roho bed mattresses and two bed alarms for veterans and other patients residing at the Dr. F. W. Green Home.
With this current donation the RCL #24 has provided over $55,600 in funding for various pieces of medial equipment and/or patient comforts for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital or the Green Home.
The Legion’s mission is to serve all Veterans including serving Canadian Forces and Royal Canadian Mounted Police members, and their families, to promote Remembrance and to serve our communities and our country.
