Remarkable Gift of $50,500 from KHCA to Starlite
Kimberley, BC… “The brightest stars are those who shine for the benefit of others” is definitely the most appropriate quote about helping others that EKFH could find to describe the latest gift for the Starlite Campaign.
The Kimberley Health Care Auxiliary and its two thrift stores (Kimberley & Marysville locations) made a remarkable gift of $50,500 to the annual Starlite Campaign. This is a major gift for the 2015 campaign. The donation is going to work quickly with funding confirmation being released by EKFH to purchase two colonoscopes for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital, two vital signs monitors for the Kimberley Health Center and Home Nursing and a portable suction unit for the Kimberley Special Care Respiratory program.
“Our volunteers are very excited and proud of our accomplishment in supporting the Kimberley Special Care Home, the Kimberley Health Unit and the East Kootenay Regional Hospital,” explains KHCA President Jean Minifie. “The people who support our thrift shops are the true stars of this donation. Our Auxiliary is sincerely grateful for all the donations and to those that purchase through our shops that allows us to make such a gift.”
EKFH reports that the traditional lighting of stars has received overwhelming support and that with public donations and the remarkable KHCA gift the full slate of 17 large stars and 24 small stars has lit up the roofline of the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.
The 8th annual Starlite Campaign continues through to the end of January with a focus of raising funds for regional and community health care programs. Your contributions however large or small are greatly appreciated and are put to good use in your community or the East Kootenay region. Your generosity makes a positive impact on people who are in need, as well as the larger community. Every gift matters visit www.ekfh.ca to learn more.
