Creston Shriners donate to Creston Valley Hospital pediatric unit…

Web Lead

Since 2006 the Creston Valley Shrine Club No. 35 has quietly been making annual donations to the pediatric unit at the Creston Valley Hospital (CVH).

Recently, the Shriners once again presented a donation of $636 for the kids. What the Shriners didn’t realize is that with this generous gift the club has now surpassed over $10,000 in giving to the hospital.

“The pediatric team is genuinely touched by the continued support of the Shriners and we are pleased to work with EKFH to see these gifts stewarded for Creston,” said new site manager Carolyn Hawton.

The East Kootenay Foundation for Health is a non-profit society and public charitable foundation. The foundation stewards over 30 funds for hospitals and health care facilities throughout the East Kootenay.
