Kitimat General Hospital Fund receives two donations

Zoey and Quinn Dennis have made their mom, Debbie Oliveira, very proud.

They decided they wanted to donate to the Kitimat General Hospital Foundation in memory of their Avo (grandmother) who passed away in July, 2016, because they “want to help people who are sick like their Avo was, so they can stay in Kitimat when they’re sick and get their medicine at our hospital”.

This donation was in celebration of Zoey’s fifth birthday.

The Kitimat General Hospital Foundation is very happy to help Zoey and Quinn make medical care better for people like her Avo.

Thank you, Zoey and Quinn, you are a wonderful example to children everywhere.

Second story

The Kitimat District Teachers Association presented a wonderful gift in the amount of $1,328 to the Kitimat General Hospital Foundation (KGHF) on Tuesday, December 12.

Anna Rego and Emily Toews, social coordinators for the Kitimat Teachers’ Union, were on hand to present the gift to members of KGHF, and explained the funds were raised at their annual Christmas Dinner and Dance.

Michelle Wakita, KGHF president, said the funds will go towards the kitchen renovations at Delta King Lodge, which is the project adopted by the Board of Directors for 2018.

The kitchen renovations are estimated to cost $60,000 in order to provide a commercial kitchen at Delta King, in order to ensure the residents receive healthy, home-cooked meals on a daily basis.

The Foundation supports the Lodge in their endeavors, as well as providing funds to Mountainview Multi-Level Care and the Kitimat General Hospital and Health Centre.

The generosity of community groups like the Kitimat District Teachers Association, Rotary Club, Catholic Women’s League, and the Ladies Auxiliary of the Luso Canadian Association, working together with the Hospital Foundation and Delta King Lodge, ensures the project will be successful in 2018.
