More than $15,000 to hospital foundation
The Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation has benefitted from a series of recent donations.
First, the Golden Ears Shrine Club presented the foundation with a cheque for $5,000. That money will help purchase a pediatric ventilator for Ridge Meadows Hospital.
Then, the Million Dollar Round Table Foundation of Canada donated $1,177.20 to the hospital foundation. That money will help establish a patient supply cupboard to aid and assist those in need and relieve congestion in the hospital.
Lastly, the Ridge Meadows South Asian Cultural Society donated $2,500 from its annual golf tournament and $7,000 from its annual gala.
In past years, donations from the RIMSACS supported the work of the Ridge Meadows Hospital Surgical Department and McKenney Creek Hospice, as well as purchased equipment for the occupational therapists working in Maple Ridge Home Health services of Fraser Health as well as Cythera Transition House.
