Kitimat residents step forward to help hospital fund

Rick and Andy Wozney, and Leon Dumstrey-Soos dig deep

The Kitimat General Hospital Foundation (KGHF) was the recipient of $2,600 through three very generous individuals from Kitimat.

Rick and Andy Wozney, and Leon Dumstrey-Soos, joined KGHF board members at the hospital to make their presentation. Rick and Andy presented two cheques, one for $1,500 and one for $100 respectively, and Leon presented a cheque for $1,000.

“It’s generous community members like Rick, Andy and Leon who ensure the on-going success of the Hospital Foundation,” said KGHF treasurer, Corinne Scott. Their generosity makes it possible for us to purchase equipment that benefits all those who need the hospital.”

The funds will be used to help fund the renovations to the kitchen at Delta King Place, Assisted Living facility in Kitimat.
