The East Kootenay Foundation for Health (EKFH) is proud to hold the 2nd Annual Day of Giving on December 13th at the Creston Valley Hospital from 11am-3pm. The EKFH will be set up in the main lobby spreading the spirit of the Holidays and their annual Starlite Campaign by accepting donations for Creston Valley Hospital’s tiniest patients.
The East Kootenay Foundation for Health is raising $35,000 to purchase and isolette. An isolette is a specialized crib (incubator) that maintains a warm environment for a new baby and isolates him or her from germs. A baby, especially a premature baby, who cannot maintain body heat, can be protected from drafts and cold in an isolette. Oxygen can also be administered to a newborn in an isolette without the use of a mask. The isolette can be life-saving for an infant waiting to be transferred to a larger centre.
Please stop by the Creston Valley Hospital on December 13th from 11am-3pm to donate! Everyone who donates on the Day of Giving will have their name will be entered into a draw to win a gift basket from Save On. The goal for December 13th is to raise $10,000 to light up the star on top of the Creston Valley Hospital!
If you are unable to stop by on December 13th you are invited to make a holiday gift to the EKFH by calling 1-877-489-6481 or go online to ekfh.ca. The EKFH would like to thank all of their past and current donors and they look forward to having a successful 2019 Starlite Campaign!
